Mission Statement

IHN's misson is to serve homeless families by uniting faith community volunteers and local agencies in a cooperative effort to provide shelter, meals, and compassionate, ongoing assistance.

Description

Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Fort Wayne (IHN) meets families at a time of personal crisis and helps them begin the journey back to self-sufficiency.

IHN was formed as a community response to homeless families in 1999. Since that time, we have served over 900 individuals with the demand for our services growing each year. Of those, over 500 were children under the age of 18. On average, 79% of families served by IHN and 100% of those who have stayed in the program for a minimum of 45 days, transition to stable housing and employment after leaving our program. All participants receive income, education and/or job counseling and other supportive services to help them return to self-sufficiency.

The IHN model of collaborating with other social service providers, utilizing the support of local faith organizations, and maintaining a volunteer base has proven to be an innovative, effective and cost-efficient program focused on meeting the needs of homeless families in our area.
