IHNOC Needs 1,000 People Who Care – Campaign Will Help IHNOC and Working Homeless

Posted on November 24, 2015 By

When Ocean County working families need housing help to survive, they can turn to The Interfaith Hospitality Network of Ocean County (IHNOC), a 501(c)(3). Now the IHNOC needs help to continue its mission of helping these working families.

A new IHNOC fundraising initiative, “$100 from 1,000” to raise $100,000 will help the IHNOC continue to help working families with shelter, food and “home” in local Ocean County congregations, among other services.

A $100.00 annual tax-deductible donation from individuals or businesses will help this 18-year-old organization continue to do its work today and for years to come. To donate online, visit www.ihnoc.net and then click on “donate.” Donations by check made out to IHNOC should be sent to IHNOC 253 Chestnut Street, Toms River, NJ 08753.

Besides shelter and food, the IHNOC and its more than 1,000 volunteers connect people to community resources, financial and employment counseling, parenting groups, mentoring, and a wide range of other services that lead to self-sufficiency. IHNOC board president Rev. Al Spangler noted that the average family spends about 103 days in the IHNOC program.

Pat Cash, executive director of IHNOC, said that although IHNOC actively and continually applies for government and private grants, the organization is competing with thousands of other worthy nonprofits in New Jersey and funding has been shrinking or even disappearing.
