The Overnight Shelter program provides shelter for homeless families through local congregations rotating in their responsibilities on a weekly basis. Meals and transportation between the host congregation and the two Day Centers is provided. For more information contact the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cleveland or visit the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cleveland website.
Programs: 1. Food & Shelter – Through IHN congregations become temporary homes in which families are treated as guests and are able to maintain their dignity. IHN guests are sheltered each night in church and synagogue facilities throughout Greater Cleveland and are cared for by congregation volunteers. Guests stay for a week at each host congregation, arriving at 5:30 p.m. and leaving at 7:00 a.m. Most congregations provide hospitality 4 weeks a year. Host congregations convert classrooms or a social hall into bedrooms for their host week (roll-away beds and room dividers are provided). 50 volunteers each week serve home-cooked dinners, lunch and breakfast, spend time with guests in the evening and stay with guests overnight. Most volunteer shifts are 2 to 3 hours. Some congregations act as support congregations, providing volunteer support to a nearby hosting congregation. 2. Transportation - IHN transports guest children to and from their original school and transports families between the hosting congregations and the Family Centers. Through this program guest children are able to maintain a stable and consistent “school life” while their “home life” is disrupted. IHN also provides bus tickets for guests to use while seeking employment, housing and other services. 3. The Family Center – During the day guest families use one of IHN’s two Family Centers as their home base. The Shaker Heights and Tremont Family Centers both include: showers, laundry; private rooms; kitchen; workspace used to seek housing and employment. 4. Homeward Bound Project - IHN guests receive professional, social work case management and practical support to help them regain housing and stability. 5. Homeless Family Support Project –This project marshals the time and talent of IHN’s volunteers to provide specialized support to homeless families.
