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.

for today

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.



Hope in Action

Family Promise of  Delaware County - a non-profit community service agency providing temporary accommodations for 3-4  homeless families at a time in our Interfaith Hospitality Network Shelter. We serve as an alternate to the shelter system, which often has families living apart.
