The mission of Interfaith Hospitality Network of Washtenaw County (IHN) is to provide temporary shelter, food and support services for area families. More than just providing a bed and a roof for families, their goal is to support the families in securing and maintaining their own home. Twice a year our church members volunteer at IHN's facility—known as Alpha House—by preparing meals, mentoring children, and providing a listening ear to parents.
Interfaith Hospitality Network is one of many needed programs assisting homeless families. It is not a complete solution to the problems faced by homeless people, but it can and does offer hope to families where hope may have been lost.
