This rating was published 11/01/2019 and includes data from FY2018, the most recent 990 received at that time.

Interfaith Family Services (formerly Interfaith Housing Coalition) was founded in 1985 to provide transitional housing and support services to homeless families. Through the years, a broad coalition of individuals, foundations, churches, and service groups have joined the ministry. Initially designed to help families with situational homelessness stabilize and move forward within 90 days, the Interfaith Housing program has evolved to provide an in-depth approach to address the root issues of generational poverty and homelessness with families now staying up to 12 months depending on their specific needs. Our programs promote family stability, teach skills to break the poverty cycle, and build a strong sense of community in the process.
