What is IHN?

The Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) is a ministry that WUMC partners with that helps homeless families and homeless women with children. They give them shelter, and help them find jobs and housing to get them back up on their feet.
Our church will be taking several homeless families in on September 30th through Oct 6th. During this week we call on you the church to help us reach out and care for these families by helping us with set up, tear down, meals, playing with the children, and hosting the families in the evening. Pouring into these families is a huge blessing for them, but you will find it is a blessing for you as well.
For more information we have a yellow brochure in the kiosks or you can call Sally Dessauer or Carol Wright at 513.661.3139
