Interfaith Housing Services

http://www.ihs-housing.org

Interfaith Housing Services, Inc. was envisioned at a Housing Symposium on January 22, 1989. Realizing the great need in our community for assisting low-income families and individuals meet their housing needs, a core group of volunteers developed what soon became Interfaith Housing Services (IHS). Today, Interfaith Housing Services (IHS), a faith-based organization not affiliated with any religion, is a convergence of many denominations, civic organizations, social groups, businesses, and individuals who help meet the needs of our community. IHS envisions communities where equal opportunities for safe, affordable, accessible and quality housing services are available to everyone.

Several persons from First Mennonite Church were instrumental in the formative stages of Interfaith Housing Services, and numerous people continue to be involved with this ministry.

New Beginnings Homeless Shelter

http://www.newbeginnings-inc.org

We support the ministries of New Beginnings in a variety of ways. In the past the youth group and the Ministry of Christian Service joined Journey @ South Hutchinson in their Matthew 25:35 Project. In addition, First Presbyterian Church and one other Presbyterian church have also joined in this project.

The project consists of partnering together to put together boxes of nonperishable food items for the New Beginnings intake person to distribute to families who come in to apply for housing with New Beginnings.
