The Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) helps temporarily homeless families in Essex County get back on their feet. Families stay in local churches and synagogues and have meals, companionship, and overnight supervision provided by volunteers from the congregations as they rebuild their lives. This November the
location will be 12 Park Street in Bloomfield (a house owned by Park United Methodist Church.)
We are recruiting for volunteers to staff the various shifts! First Congregational will be volunteering to help on November 20 and 24 this year.
You can CLICK HERE to sign up for opportunities to help with contributing a meal, clean up, children's activities or overnight supervision (if you sign-up for the overnight shift please bring a pillow and a
blanket.—air mattresses will be provided.)
As volunteers we provide food, conversation, and for the children, games or help with homework.
Contact our IHN Coordinator, Sarah Feliciano, at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have any questions.
