From the ashes of a small committee working on a food cupboard to InterFaith Housing Alliance has been a long and beautiful trip. Catching a vision of what could be, housing the homeless became our passion. From church to church housing to Hope Gardens apartments and now our home on Forest Avenue (Hope Forest) volunteers and good staff have enriched the lives of our community by helping the homeless become home owners, solid renters, and a people who have a resource to encourage them on their way to self respect and community involvement.
It's been a really great ride! Ron Lutz - retired pastor - former Board member

IFHA has been excellent in helping families during tough times in their life overcome homelessness. They offer many resources that help one become stable again, as well as counseling services to help resolve personal matter that could hinder ones growth. After leaving their program, they continue to help families with obtaining funding, food, gifts, clothing, and much more. Overall my experience with IFHA was great. I would refer anyone to them that is a time of need. Thank you IFHA for all you do!

Inter-Faith Housing Alliance is committed to serving homeless children and families. The organization has proven success in the implementation of care with outcomes that denote best practice models steadily increasing services to meet the ever growing need I our catchment area. It is an organization that excels in the management of financial resources through sound stewardship and financial practices. I am thankful for the work being done by Inter-Faith Housing Alliance, its leadership and its many partners that meet the ever growing needs of at-risk families. I am proud to serve as a newly elected board member.

Inter-Faith Housing Alliance has, over the years, been a shining light in the community of Ambler, PA. It's Hope Gardens transitional housing facility as well as the Hospitality Network (which works with local congregations to provide a safe, welcoming place to stay for folks who have been displaced) have been invaluable. Inter-Faith has enjoyed enormous community volunteer support which is a testament to it's vital role in the local community.

I volunteered/worked part time at Inter-Faith Housing Alliance for two consecutive summers while I was a student in college. When I first started out, all I knew was that I-FHA provided emergency and temporary shelter to those experiencing homelessness in the Montgomery County area. It wasn’t until after I had been there for a few weeks that I realized how much more than that this organization is. I-FHA is a wonderful non-profit that truly believes in helping the families they serve. They take in families who are often experiencing the worst time in their lives and put a roof over their heads, food in their stomachs, and hope in their hearts. The staff, every member of which is kind, knowledgeable, and dedicated, invests time and effort in sitting down with their clients and helping them map out exactly what they are going to do to improve their life situations. Then, they actually work hard to help make that goal become a reality, offering numerous programs that are designed to effectively teach and support clients so that they are able to not only obtain, but also keep stable housing. The work that is done at this non-profit is powerful and impactful - nothing short of amazing.

I continue to keep in touch with I-FHA to this day, occasionally doing miscellaneous tasks to help further their goals, and have never regretted choosing to dedicate my time to them. I believe in Inter-Faith Housing Alliance and their mission to make homelessness in Montgomery County brief, rare, and nonrecurring.

What a great place to volunteer. The volunteer project at the new house was well-organized and lots of fun. Glad I was able to help out.

I didn't know what to expect when I moved into Hope Gardens. I had a really nice apartment, paid rent and was also able to save money. When I left two years later I moved into my own place with my kids. I'm greatful to the staff and the volunteers who supported me.

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.
