Our Mission

Interfaith Hospitality Network is devoted to providing resources and temporary shelter for the homeless in crisis by partnering with congregations and the community.

Who is served by IHN

Current eligible guests are single women and those family units consisting of a single parent or two parent family with one or more children.


In 2018, IHN was proud to serve 109 guests, with 20 guests served per night on average.

How do we serve?

Guests that are homeless enter the program for a 30 day period. Every 30 days they receive a review, and as long as they are making progress in obtaining employment and/or secure housing, they may submit a written request to extend their stay. 


The key requirement is for us to see our guests working on the root of the problem that brought them to IHN in the first place.

Staff

We give thanks to our dedicated staff who work tirelessly with our guests and volunteers. 

  • Mindy Morehead - Executive Director

    Mindy has been the Executive Director for the past 2 years moving up from her previous position of Site Supervisor, which she held for five years.  She also currently serves as the chair for Region 2 Homeless Coalition.

Karrie is married and has 5 kids and a dog named Duke and they live in Goshen. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her family.

  • Kay Bontrager-Singer

    Kay can't decide which of her professional callings she loves more, so she does both. She is soon beginning her 14th year as co-pastor of Faith Mennonite Church and fulfills her love for social work at IHN in a case management role. Gardening is her passion and if not doing that she may be walking with a friend, piecing a quilt, reading, or talking on the phone with one of her three young adult sons. At the end of the day you may find her siting on the porch swing with Jamey, her husband of 34 years. 

  • Trevor Fein

    Trevor is back with Interfaith after a brief break working in the Automobile Industry. He realized that he really enjoyed working with the underserved and missed being here. Trevor lives in Syracuse and in his free time he enjoys spending time with family and friends.
