Mission of the Month

The June mission is Interfaith Hospitality Network

Interfaith Hospitality Network is a cooperative of many faith communities working toward providing intermediate care to homeless families as they make their way through a program of education, job training, life skills preparation, and a housing search.  This program is found in 39 states, with 4500 partnering congregations. Lakeview assists St. Pat’s Episcopal Church in Warren County.  Prescreening of families is done prior to admission to the program-- to qualify need and also to ensure that factors such as mental illness and substance abuse are not major contributing factors to the families’ homelessness.  A day center in Lebanon is where staff are housed, and this center offers programming, job and housing searches, public assistance applications, showers, and laundry facilities.  The center is also the transportation hub, where rides are provided, if needed, for family members to and from school, jobs, and other places.  Various churches rotate to provide evening and weekend shelter as well as meals. 

A majority of these families become homeless because of eviction or family disruption, such as divorce, abandonment, or domestic violence.  Given the choice of buying food or paying the high housing costs encountered in Warren County, most families choose food, leading to eviction and foreclosure.  Many of the parents have low wage jobs without benefits, and any unforeseen problem such as illness can lead to homelessness.

Our offering can help to defray expenses for so many items needed to operate the program in Warren County. Google Interfaith Hospitality of Warren County for more details on the program.  The need is especially great right now during the coronavirus pandemic, as the families are being housed in motels, which creates an entirely new and significant expense. Please consider a gift, and talk to Ellen Abel if you would like to know more, since we come to you several times a year seeking hosting volunteers.  Thanks!
