Interfaith Council for Homeless Families was created in 1989, in response to the growing number of homeless families in Morris County. Their network of volunteers from local congregations provides emergency shelter, meals and support services to families who are homeless, while professionals provide ongoing case management. Families can be two parents with children, single parent with children, guardian with children or couples. Our Network provides basic needs of shelter and food, while advocating for societal solutions to the crisis of homelessness. Volunteers offer support and encouragement as families in trouble try to survive and stay together.
