The Inter-Faith Council for Social Service (IFC) was founded in 1963 to address the significant gaps that existed in the social safety net of our community. Seven local church women created the IFC "to discover unmet needs and to respond through the coordinated efforts of volunteers." With no paid staff or office space, IFC began providing crisis intervention assistance to people in dire need. Today it is a not-for-profit non-denominational social service organization with a small staff providing basic services to combat poverty, hunger and homelessness in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. IFC is the principal agency in Orange County for mobilizing our community to address homelessness, hunger, and economic disparity.
