Christ Church is a host congregation for Interfaith Hospitality Network of Ocean County (IHN). IHN is a non-profit, interfaith ministry committed to providing shelter, meals and assistance to homeless families.
We are responsible for providing overnight lodging and meals for 3-5 families for 1 week each 2-3 months on a rotating schedule. Volunteers are needed to shop for supplies, cook meals, serve as evening hosts and overnight hosts and set up and clean up before and after the week.
IHN families also receive financial, career, individual and family counseling through professional volunteers as they seek permanent employment and affordable housing. Volunteers are the heart and soul of the program as they offer a compassionate, caring and secure environment where the families are treated with respect and are offered hope.
IHN has a proven track record and is part of a National Program with 171 Networks operating in 41 states. To read IHN of Ocean County's newsletter click on: BEACON
