About the Companies Caring Breakfast
The Interfaith Works Companies Caring Breakfast attracts more then 400 leaders from the business, political, governmental and nonprofit communities, who gather to celebrate our partnerships that help uplift our neighbors in need. Interfaith Works serves over 16,000 people each year by empowering individuals and families with the tools and skills to lift themselves from poverty and homelessness.
“If it were not for the support I received from Interfaith, I would probably be dead or in jail. I had nothing to live for. Everything had been taken away from me and everyone turned their back. Now I have confidence again. I’m able to make my own decisions and the opportunities keep opening up. I am in control of my own life and for that I am grateful to Interfaith.”
– Ryan, resident of Interfaith Works’ Carroll House men’s shelter
Each year at the breakfast, Interfaith Works recognizes individuals and organizations who have gone far beyond what was or could have been expected in contributing to the success of Interfaith Works and improving the quality of life in our community. This year, we are thrilled to recognize four tremendous awardees who are civic minded, socially responsible and committed to ending poverty in Montgomery County.

Interfaith Works is committed to attacking the root causes of poverty, and has set a new strategic direction to make Montgomery County the lowest poverty rate county in the state of Maryland. It is an audacious goal, but we believe we can get there, especially with the commitment and passion of our 2017 awardees. In recognition of our honorees, awards funds have been created to help Interfaith Works in its mission to empower people to lift themselves out of poverty.

In 2016, the poverty rate in Montgomery County increased to 7.59%. The economic recovery has stalled out for many of our neighbors and the number of struggling, impoverished families is growing despite social service interventions and economic development efforts. Interfaith Works (IW) is committed to lowering this poverty rate and has set a goal to make Montgomery County the lowest poverty rate county in the state. To reach that goal, IW understands one service alone is not effective. What has proven effective are holistic, wraparound services that remove obstacles to success, provide tools and support for growth, and serve as a catalyst for independence. IW’s thirteen programs provide a range of interconnected services including; referrals, emergency assistance, transitional and permanent supportive housing, vocational services, and family mentoring. Each program is a component of IW’s Lift Strategy, which helps people move towards economic independence through prevention, stabilization and empowerment services. Combined, our programs provide services to 16,000 people annually.
