When there's no place a family can call home, MIHN opens its warm and caring doors. From the first time my family heard of MIHN we were on board, hoping to be able to help out in any way possible. It's been said that most of us are only one paycheck away from homelessness. Who among us, in this economy has not had that fear? The Montachusett Interfaith Hospitality Network is a clean, safe, comfortable place where families can stay together during one of life's most stressful moments, and work with the help of a most capable staff to get their lives back on track. Folks from churches in the surrounding area provide a hot suppertime meal along with good company, a compassionate ear and even some playtime with the kids. For us, preparing food or time spent there has given us the opportunity to try on the hands and feet of Christ, to spend a few moments living the Golden Rule. When our time there was done, we were the ones who were given the greatest joy! Our communities are so grateful for Art Heusser and his staff who keep a well trained eye making sure that the guests at MIHN are treated with dignity and all the respect they deserve while helping them find a way to a new place they can call their own.
