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. Our next opportunity to serve is November 27 through December 3, 2017.
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. For more information, contact Tom Snyder at 734.426.8480.
