What is Place of Promise?
The Place of Promise is a Christian non-profit organization that has a residential program designed to help those who are hurting, lost, and broken to choose and find Life. It owns four houses in Lowell, MA which have become not only a home for the men, women, and children who live there, but it is also a place where they can find promise for their futures. The residents at POP come to this home from a variety of backgrounds and countries. It is a place where each is recognized for the beauty of being a human being created in the image of God and who has something to give to the family and the community of Place of Promise.
The center of Place of Promise is a belief that the Way to have Life is to know and have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. Jesus does not turn away from the poor, suffering, or the people who are considered the “fringe” of society, but He loves and empowers them to live to each one’s fullest potential. The Place of Promise is a place reaching out to those who no longer want to wear the labels they themselves and society have given them. Instead, each one who comes to live at Place of Promise chooses life with a promise that they can be treated as individuals with goals, futures, and hopes.
Place of Promise has been in existence for twelve years and has made a positive difference in the lives of many hurting, broken people. Each one who comes is assisted in finding the best health care services, day treatment centers, counselors, social services, educational services, etc. available in the Lowell area to provide what they need to live to their fullest potential.
At the same time, each one becomes part of the supportive caring family of Place of Promise where the staff help provide case management and advocacy necessary to implement outside interventions towards the goal of life and spiritual, relational, emotional, and physical healing.
