Reviews for Inter-Faith Housing Alliance
I used to live at Inter Faith's Shelter Program not too long ago. I heard years ago how wonderful this program used to be. It has changed for the worst. I wasn't there that long but I heard from numerous people that lived there how bad it became. For me, I got nothing out of it. It was a complete waiste of time for me. Its hard trying to work on bettering your life when the entire staff is just miserable and unhelpful. I lived at 2 other shelters and i never had so many problems at those shelters as i did at Interfaith in Ambler. I don't reccomend this place to anyone.

My church became involved with this organization over 20 years ago by inviting suburban homeless and their families into our church for one month a year through this organization's "Hospitality Network". One month a year (every March) our church provides meals, transportation, overnight accommodations and other services for these people who for no reason of their own find themselves without a home. Many of these people move to Interfaith's 8 unit apartment building, where they can have a "home of their own", paying a small portion of ther income, if any, while they are assisted in getting back on their feet. They receive emotional support, counseling, financial counseling and job search assistance from this wonderful organization. About a year and a half ago, after retiring from my job, my friend and I offered our volunteer assistance, doing maintenance on Interfaith's apartment building, "Hope Gardens". We have seen first hand the hope that Interfaith gives to these people who otherwise might have no help. We have gotten to know the Interfaith staff and have seen how dedicated these people are to making life better for the suburban homeless of Montgomery County, PA.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the hope that they instill in people's lives.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand the organization so that more people can be helped.
