IHN 2019

Interfaith Hospitality Network 

The Interfaith Hospitality Network of Essex County is located at 46 Park St. (Central Presbyterian Church) in Montclair, NJ.

The IHN program provides emergency shelter and meals 365 days a year through a network of 25 churches and synagogues in Essex County. Three to five families (up to 14 people) stay at a different house of worship each week where dedicated volunteers express hospitality by providing a safe and comfortable temporary home for our families.  They furnish sleeping quarters and a hospitality room where guests relax, socialize, do homework and watch television.

A coordinator at each congregation is responsible for scheduling volunteers to prepare meals, serve as evening and overnight hosts, coordinate activities, organize supplies and assist guests as needed.  During the day, families can stay at the Family Service & Resource Center to meet with their case manager, access phones and computers and use the shower facilities. After school, children return to the Center to do their homework or play before they're taken back to the host congregation.

Our next visit with the IHN Guests will be the week of May 12, 2019. Once again, together with Temple Sholom of West Essex, Cedar Grove, NJ we will host families. 

If you are unable to volunteer at this time, monetary donations are welcomed.  Monetary donations will be used for Mother’s Day gifts, grocery items, diapers or any last minute necessities. (Checks are made payable to Notre Dame and can be mailed in or dropped off at the Parish Office.)

If you have any questions about volunteering or sign up, please feel free to contact Donna Zaros our IHN Coordinator: [email protected] or 973-403-1347 or 201-247-2652 or Temple Sholom's Coordinator: Shari Ritter  [email protected].
