Interfaith Works (IW) was established in 1972 to help vulnerable residents in Montgomery County facing homelessness and poverty. We partner with those who also are committed to helping our struggling neighbors, including 5,200 compassionate and devoted volunteers, individual donors, 165 diverse faith communities, other social service agencies, foundations, corporations, and government agencies.
As experts in providing services to people who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless, our professional, trained staff members provide individuals and families with resources and tools specific to their needs, empowering them to take responsibility and move from crisis to stability.
Interfaith Works goes beyond meeting basic needs.
A CLINICAL FOCUS, not just caring people but qualified, licensed staff.
PROGRAMS FOR CHANGE, not just shelters for the homeless. Individuals are held accountable and are expected to participate in our life-changing programs.
CASE MANAGEMENT, not just housing. Our programs meet basic needs while supporting one’s growth with individualized action plans. We make a long-term commitment to those we serve so they can make the changes needed to lift themselves.
A HAND UP, not just a handout. Our team collaborates with clients and connects them to critical resources, including Interfaith Works’ Vocational Services program.
