Our Congregation’s Host Week for IHN is coming up! January 28 – February 3

 

The sign-ups have begun!  We’re looking for volunteers to host dinner and/or overnight for the Interfaith Hospitality Network at 91 June Street. IHN is not staffed in the evening and that is where we come in.  If you have not volunteered in the past, and would like to learn more, please speak to or email me or Dianne Mann for details.  Should you decide to volunteer, we will team you up with an experienced volunteer.

The Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Worcester (IHN) works in partnership with the faith community to provide shelter and assistance to families with children who are homeless. The program’s primary goals are to assist families in increasing their income and to help them secure permanent housing, while providing the critical support services necessary for them to succeed.  IHN of Greater Worcester serves families who do not qualify for state-funded Emergency Assistance (EA) shelter through the Department of Housing and Community Development; making it a critical program in the community safety net for families that are homeless. Check out their website for more information:  http://www.ihnworcester.org/

The sign-up board is in Fellowship Hall from now until January 28.

Thank you for your support.
