INTERFAITH SHELTER NETWORK
InterFaith Shelter Network has been moving people out of homelessness in Sonoma County since our inception in 1989. We do this by empowering families and individuals who are experiencing homelessness by providing them with rapid rehousing and transitional housing and a range of services that includes tenant counseling, financial assistance and education, free psychotherapy, and case management.
Providing housing and a hand up for homeless men, women and children in Sonoma County in an atmosphere of dignity, respect and kindness; towards an outcome of empowerment, self-sufficiency and independence.
