Hope in Action

Reach Out

Work with members in your community and make a difference

Homelessness can affect anyone,. Job loss, illness, family break-ups  are a few reasons families find themselves in a homeless crisis . Devote an evening to volunteering at our IHN Shelter and see first-hand the families we help daily.

For small non-profits, funding is always a serious matter.  Only 6% of our budget is used for administrative cost.  The majority of our budget (80%) is funded through private grants, foundations, congregations and individuals. It is easy to see first hand how your donation is changing the lives of families.
