A Community Response for Homeless Families”Empowering homeless families by engaging people of faith”
The people are housed in different churches around the area. The requirements include rigorous education and strict behavioral expectations. While Ascension does not host the families, we take two evenings and nights in the week that Olathe Bible Church hosts, which is once a quarter. We provide supervision through the evening until morning, meals, snacks and transportation. Training required to provide supervision, (offered several times a year) and help is also needed with providing meals and snacks. Johnson County Interfaith Hospitality Network, Inc. is a nonprofit organization serving homeless families in Johnson County, Kansas. Our mission is to unite and enable the faith community to provide homeless families with emergency shelter and meals, as well as compassionate assistance with social services, and relationships with caring people in the faith community. We hope to return the homeless families to a renewed sense of dignity and hope, and independent living in the shortest time possible. http://www.jocoihn.org Contact Dorothy or Dave firstname.lastname@example.org or Ellen email@example.com with questions.
