Interfaith began in 1982 with a concerned group of individuals consisting of clergy, social service agency directors and other community members who formed the Interfaith Council.

 

A Church of Women United Committee was appointed to investigate various ways to meet the needs of the increasing number of individuals requiring emergency food and shelter. Many different approaches were considered and it was decided to concentrate efforts on a central clearing house for families. Interfaith began serving individuals needing basic emergency assistance in October of 1984.

 

Interfaith has evolved into a non-profit organization whose primary focus is homelessness prevention provided through a broad range of emergency services and case management to promote self-sufficiency.
