A Letter to Our potential Partners
Hospitality Network looks much different today than it did even two short years
ago. With the tremendous support of churches, partners, and many other
individuals, IHN now provides shelter for an average of 20 individuals per day
-- nearly double the amount from just one year ago. IHN has moved into a permanent
overnight location at St. Marks United Methodist Church, giving guests a more
consistent overnight home during their stay. In addition, IHN has turned the
Day Center into an overnight warming shelter during the cold winter months.
Even with these
positive changes (and many others), there is much more work to be done. There
are a number of projects in the works that IHN will announce in the coming
months. In order to be able to adequately fund these projects, we are asking corporations,
individuals, and organizations to partner with IHN by underwriting the costs of
monthly operations. In this way, other much-needed fundraising can go directly toward
upcoming projects that will continue to extend our impact.
It costs IHN
$15,000 per month or $7,500 every two weeks to operate. Put another way, it
costs $3,000 to house one family for a month or $750 per guest per month.
We are thrilled
to announce that we have had five companies who generously agreed to underwrite one month each in 2019 thus far, giving IHN a great start towards our goal of completely
underwriting 100 percent of our costs.
Would you, your family, your
company, or your organization be willing to underwrite IHN’s overall costs for a
month or two weeks or for a family for a period of time? Will you join us in our
mission of supporting the homeless community and helping our guests to build
appreciation for your support,
IHN Board of
