Interfaith Hospitality Network of Washtenaw County

In 1992, a gap in service was identified in Washtenaw County for children and families experiencing homelessness. While there were shelters for individuals experiencing homelessness, there was too 
often no place for families with children who were sleeping in their cars, camping, living doubled up 
or in another situation not meant for habitation. The Interfaith Hospitality Network was created by a 
group of volunteers as a rotating shelter to address this gap in service. Area religious congregations provided space in their buildings for families to sleep and volunteers to provide dinner and support. 
 Each week, families moved from one hosting congregation to the next. While not perfect, this system successfully sheltered local families and children for ten years.
