Interfaith pledges to move 1,000 off the streets

Interfaith Community Services is committed to ending the struggle of homelessness for 1,000 men, women, and children by June 30, 2018! In collaboration with our community, our Housing 1000 campaign will address the growing crisis of homelessness by moving our homeless neighbors off of the streets, while providing the practical housing assistance they need.

Individuals facing homelessness typically do not have the resources to finance apartment living, nor the essentials to make a comfortable home. Therefore, our two flexible and individualized programs that drive Housing 1000 – “Make it a Home” and “Hope in Housing” – provide each individual and family with just the right necessities for long-term housing stability. These programs offer case management, short-term bridge housing, food assistance, rental assistance, move-in expense coverage, and a supply of household items, furniture, moving trucks, and personnel.

Please join this wonderful collaboration of generous donors, volunteers, service clubs, faith centers, corporations, and foundations that are helping to end homelessness.

How can YOU get involved?

  1. Donate furniture towards our Make it a Home program. This program provides each man, woman, and child with the necessities to escape the streets and guide them out of homelessness and into their own homes, where they can be self-sufficiency and thrive. We ask that you, your family, faith center, organization, or business join this cause by volunteering, contributing funds, donating furniture and household items, organizing a donation drive, or participating in your own unique way!
  2. Donate dollars to our Hope in Housing program. This program provides vital monetary assistance towards move-in costs for our formerly homeless North County neighbors. This program is an easy way that your community group, business, faith center, or school can help our neighbors remain off of the streets, in their own homes, and ensure long-term success.
  3. Volunteer in one of our housing programs. Whether you or your group assembles hygiene kits, serves dinner to residents of our Haven House Year-Round Shelter, or hosts a donation drive to collect items for “Move-In Kits,” your time is one of the best gifts you can give.
