INTERFAITH HOSPITALITY NETWORK

The Interfaith Hospitality Network – Main Line (IHN-ML), headquartered in Norristown, PA, unites people from different segments of the local community to work collaboratively to alleviate the suffering of homeless families. While not a religious organization, they get the majority of their volunteers from faith-based organizations which have a strong desire to help and a built-in volunteer base. They serve homeless families in Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery Counties.

IHN-ML brings social service agencies together with congregations of all faiths to provide basic needs – regardless of a family’s race or religion – to help that family become self-sufficient again. IHN-ML is one of 115 affiliates in 38 states, including Family Promise in the District of Columbia. Family Promise was founded 20 years ago, when the first Interfaith Hospitality Network opened its doors and then grew into a national organization.

Our congregation participates in IHN as a supporting congregation.  We assist St. David's Episcopal Church in Devon during their IHN host weeks (four times a year) by providing meals, childcare, and overnight volunteers.
