Interfaith Works Connections Program Description
Interfaith Works Connections links low-income residents of Montgomery County to the resources they need. The Resource Coordinators of this unique initiative, bilingual in English and Spanish, meet with Interfaith Works Clothing Center customers to conduct a comprehensive needs assessment, gather information to make referrals to appropriate partner providers, and educate clients about available assistance. Referrals are made to many types of services, including food, vocational services, English/literacy classes, furniture and behavioral health. Interfaith Works Connections also works with neighbors in financial crisis to provide a safety net and prevent evictions and utility cutoffs.
