> Interfaith Hospitality Network of Ocean County
Hospitality Network of Ocean County, part
of the national network Family Promise, seeks to assist
families in transition with temporary safe and comfortable
shelter and hot dinners in churches until they can find
affordable permanent housing. Four times a year, St. Mary’s
offers one week of housing and hospitality to IHN families.
Many compassionate members of our congregation furnish
breakfast and lunch items, dinners and fellowship, supplies
and overnight hospitality to our guests. Host congregations
extend a safe, peaceful and welcoming atmosphere for guests
in the program. The Interfaith Hospitality Network also
provides financial, career, individual and family counseling
through professional volunteers.
