Interfaith's Housing programs work to reverse the cycle of homelessness by connecting individuals with a wide range of emergency, short-term and permanent housing resources. Last year, 924 individuals slept under an Interfaith roof. Housing services include specialized resources for homeless men and women, as well as families, veterans, seniors and individuals with disabilities. All Housing programs include case management and supportive services to ensure individuals achieve not only housing stability, but also self-sufficiency.

Interfaith's short-term housing programs provide between one and two years of housing for homeless individuals and families. Along with housing, residents engage in comprehensive counseling and case-managed services.

Interfaith also offers a comprehensive Family Housing Program, in addition to specialized transitional housing for veterans, individuals overcoming addiction and individuals living with mental illness.

Interfaith also provides owned and operated supportive permanent housing for homeless disabled individuals, as well as families with a disabled adult family member.
