In recognition of the dignity and value of every human life, the mission of IPH, is to address the needs of the homeless and low-income community by providing a continuum of services to encourage self-sufficiency, empowerment and stability.
IPH (formally known as Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless) was founded in 1984 as Interfaith Partnership for the Homeless by the Capital Area Council of Churches and is a designated 501c(3) non-profit organization.
Beginning as a provider of emergency shelter for single adults, IPH has expanded its non-denominational programming to include a continuum of services that assist over 2500 homeless and at-risk individuals and families each year. IPH promotes life skills development and self-sufficiency.
