Update - April, 27, 2018:
Dear Pickleball Friends,
I work at the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Athens (IHNA) and want to express our sincere thanks for your generous $800 donation! Our organization supports homeless families, housing them in faith congregation buildings and providing wrap around support services. 80-85% of our families find jobs and permanent housing and get back on their feet. There are many working poor who provided a three month cushion of support can regain stable lives. Did you know that Athens Clarke County is one of the poorest in the country?
IHN is a national organization. It is not a religious organization but has faith congregation partners. In Athens we have 38 congregations in our network and over 1000 volunteers. This includes Islamic, Christian, Jewish, Mormon, Unitarian, Christian Science, Quaker and other traditions. It’s a beautiful example of a diverse group of people serving together to make a difference!
Thank you again for your contribution to support homeless families in Athens.
