Review for Inter-Faith Housing Alliance, Ambler, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

Role:  Volunteer & Provided volunteer maintenance services for their apartment building.
