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!

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.
