Need Help?

Each year, Interfaith Works helps nearly 17,000 neighbors in need through our programs that prevent, stabilize and empower. But how do you get started?

Interfaith Works has a resource guide that covers a range of services to help people who are experiencing homelessness, at risk of becoming homeless or are facing other challenges.

Resources for Referrals to Services Interfaith Works Connections links low-income residents of Montgomery County to the resources they need. The Resource Coordinator of this unique initiative, bilingual in English and Spanish, meets with clients to conduct a comprehensive needs assessment, gathering information to make referrals to appropriate partner providers for food, vocational services, legal assistance, health services, emergency services and child care.
