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!

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.
