Interfaith Hospitality Network of Warren County (IHNWC) opened its doors in October of 1998. During that time, many questioned if Warren County even had an issue with homeless families. During IHNWC's first year of operation, 28 homeless families were taken into the program. Unfortunately, the number of families in need of housing has only increased since 1998.
With humble beginnings on Lebanon's Cherry Street, IHNWC has transformed substantially. Now located at 203 E. Warren Street, IHNWC not only offers non-emergency shelter services, but also provides Homeless Prevention & Rapid-Rehousing, Free Tax Preparation, Furniture Assistance, and access to the State of Ohio's benefits.
In addition to these programs, IHNWC works to find solutions for community members undergoing hardship. For example, a homeless individual may enter the office with nowhere to go. IHNWC will assist in finding a roof to put over this individual's head for the night. Or, an individual in an abusive relationship may contact the office needing shelter. IHNWC will locate the appropriate services in Warren County, and advise the individual of the best action to take. These instances are part of our referral process. In 2016 alone, IHNWC processed over 1,300 referrals.
To date, IHNWC has assisted over 600 homeless families to successfully find housing solutions, inclusive to over 1,000 children and 100 expecting mothers.
