The Interfaith Homeless Network (IHN) at Northwest Assistance Ministries (NAM) is a collaboration of faith-based congregations who work together to meet the needs of local families who are homeless. By working together to supply basic needs, the IHN helps families rise out of homelessness and create a safe, stable home in which to grow and thrive.
On Wednesday, October 10, 2018, the Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County hosted its annual World Homeless Day Awards reception presented by CORT Furniture. Recognizing World Homeless Day at a local level, the event provides an update on the status of homelessness in Houston and honors advocates for their work with those experiencing homelessness.
This year, The Way Home Navigation Workgroup, which includes NAM as one of its partners, won the 2018 World Homeless Day Spirit of Collaboration Award. “It is an honor for all of us to be recognized for our efforts to end homelessness,” said Karen Weakly, NAM’s Manager of Emergency Basic Needs/Interfaith Homeless Network. “Our commitment in 2018 has proven that we really do accomplish more as a system when we work together.”
A special thank you to our partnering congregations who continue to serve our community through IHN.
IHN is open to any family who is homeless or transitioning from homelessness.
