Mission Statement

It is Inter-Faith Housing Alliance's mission to serve God by providing charitable services to persons located in Montgomery County whose life situations have become unstable.

These charitable services shall include homelessness prevention, temporary shelter, guidance in life skills and assistance in locating appropriate housing opportunities, thus enabling families at risk to remain in or return to independent living.

Description

Since 1982, Inter-Faith Housing Alliance (IFHA) has provided food, housing and supportive services to families in crisis in Montgomery County. IFHA provides programs that are designed to provide families with the tools they need to become financially stable and self-sufficient - and thus lift families out of poverty and break the cycle of homelessness. Our community food pantry in Abington serves on average 100 residents per month. In 2013, over 1,100 requests for food were filled. IFHA operates an emergency shelter program for families experiencing homelessness which in 2013 served 41 individuals or 12 families consisting of 14 parents and 27 children. IFHA also provides safe, affordable rental apartments in Hope Gardens, the transitional housing program which housed 46 individuals or 15 families consisting of 15 parents and 31 children. The demand for our services is growing, particularly as families with children are increasingly the largest sector of the homeless population. Volunteers are a vital part of the success of our programs.
