Interfaith Hospitality Network

Interfaith is a national organization that assists families with obtaining housing and employment. Area host churches have up to 5 families stay at their church for a week and rotate to area churches, and provide the evening meal, and spend the night with them.

The homeless families rotate to different churches until Interfaith obtains their housing voucher. Monthly our church provides hygiene supplies, and our church serves dinner and spends the night 4 times per year at a host church in Monroe. http://www.ihnwc.org
