Interfaith Hospitality Network - helping families in crisis

february mission focus

Interfaith Hospitality Network, an affiliate of Family Promise, is a partnership of congregations and community organizations responding to the crisis of children & their families who are homeless. Each congregation in the network takes turns furnishing overnight lodging and meals during their assigned week, several times each year. Our role as volunteers is fundamental to this program – we can make a difference by offering dignified compassionate assistance to families who have lost their homes.

St. Mark's 2018 hosting weeks: January 14, March 25, July 29, November 4
