Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) - As a host congregation in this national program, we are part of a network of 27 congregations in the Cincinnati area who take turns hosting families temporarily experiencing homelessness during the evening and nighttime hours. During the pandemic, IHN has been had to adapt how they've provided housing but are hoping to return to their previous method later this summer. Watch for both a gathering of needed supplies (in July) and a potential hosting opportunity (in August) this summer.
