Who We AreInterfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) is a community of 24 Billings religious congregations and over 1400 volunteers that put their faith into action to provide meals, shelter, and a safe, non-judgmental environment for families experiencing homelessness. Our congregation "hosts" take turns on a weekly rotating basis providing hospitality and basic needs to our homeless "guests."
Every family receives intensive case management support, mentoring, and guidance while they look for jobs and housing. The IHN program is about compassion and accountability, and families are expected to work hard to accomplish their goals and regain housing. Our purpose is not to shelter and feed as many people as possible, but rather to have a lasting positive impact on families that go through our program. In the words of one "graduated" mom who is now living, with her son, in her own home, "IHN was hard but it changed my life."
Interfaith Hospitality Network also has four transitional housing apartments for families in our program.
