Every day Interfaith Works is here to help our neighbors

Every day Interfaith Works helps families and individuals in Montgomery County by preventing them from losing housing or utilities, stabilizing their situations, and empowering them to lift themselves out of poverty. More than 16,000 people turn to Interfaith Works every year.
