Strong partnerships are at the heart of IHNGC. Every year, more than 100 congregations and 1,000+ volunteers help to feed and shelter families in need. This person-to-person outreach, neighbors helping neighbors, creates a shelter experience for families that feels very different than what more institutional settings provide.

IHNGC also works closely with a network of local non-profits and other family shelters in the community, and has taken a leadership role in the community-wide Solutions for Family Homelessness Plan.
