Posted on Jan 12 2018 - 8:53pm

The Interfaith Hospitality Network of the Main Line (www.ihncares.org) serves homeless families in our area by providing Emergency Shelter, Meals, Life Skills Counseling, and Job Coaching.  IHN is dedicated to helping families who seek to be accountable, resilient, and strive for a better tomorrow.  St. Thomas of Villanova Parish is one of the area congregations that provides living accommodations and meals for the IHN program participants for one week every three months.  Our service project is to help breakdown the classrooms at the parish center which have been used for the past week as living quarters and restore them to a classroom setting in time for Sunday School.  Please do consider getting involved with this worthwhile, ongoing community service project.  Parents are also welcome to help out.  Be sure to indicate that you will be there next Sunday, 21 January 2018, by clicking the Event Registration to the right.
