Together, we have the power to end homelessness in our community.
OMS FOR HOMES
Sunday, November 17th 2019 From 3 PM to 4:30 PM.
Join us for a soul filling yoga class and support IHN-ML’s efforts to end homelessness in our community. Led by local instructor, Karen Gagnier, this event is for everyone including first time yogis and experienced practitioners. Live music by Kara Barnett and Anna Krain.
Join us for an opportunity to learn how the Interfaith Hospitality Network of the Main Line (an affiliate of Family Promise) is working to combat homelessness in our community and how you can be part of the solution.
Oms for Homes is held each year during National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week before Thanksgiving. This is a time for all of us to start to think about what we are thankful for, to share our compassion with our neighbors, and work toward a world where no one has to experience hunger or homelessness.
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.
