History

Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cincinnati (IHNGC) began on October 26, 1991, with a Day Center and eight congregations who opened up the doors of their churches and synagogues to homeless families.

Since 1991, our network has grown to include over 100 congregational partners, representing people of Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Muslim and Unitarian faiths. Congregations provide overnight shelter and meals for homeless families in our Emergency Shelter program.

IHNGC has also grown and enhanced the services offered over the years to provide wraparound support for the whole family that extends beyond Emergency Shelter.
