IHN (Interfaith Homeless Network)/Family Promise is a non-profit group who works with homeless families to provide job training and life skills so that families can find a home and a job. IHN partners with area churches so that each week homeless families stay at a different church overnight while they are learning how to have a better life. First-Centenary UMC hosts IHN families six times a year. If you would like to serve, e-mail Thom Coombs at ThomCoombes@comcast.net
