A great way to involve your friends, family, and faith community is by hosting a drive for the items Interfaith Works' programs need most. To learn about our greatest need, arrange for a drop-off, or find out more, please call 301-762-8682.
Men and women who previously experienced homelessness are finding stability by moving into Interfaith Works' permanent supportive housing programs. Help welcome them to their new homes by donating a Welcome Basket filled with essential items.
