Together, we have the power to end homelessness in our community.
Every year 600,000 families with 1.35 million children experience homelessness in the United States, according to the National Alliance to End Homelessness. Families are the fastest-growing segment of the homeless population, accounting for almost 50% of the nation’s homeless. Typically, families become homeless as a result of some unforeseen financial crisis – a medical emergency, a car accident, a death in the family – that prevents them from being able to hold on to housing. Interfaith Hospitality Network of the Main Line (IHN-ML) provides a caring and positive environment for homeless families while they design and implement a plan to break the cycle of homelessness in their lives. Using area congregations and the energy of several hundred community volunteers, IHN-ML is dedicated to helping families who seek to be accountable, resilient, and strive for a better tomorrow.
