We want to say a heartfelt thank you to all the congregations that partner with us to provide emergency shelter — especially to those who have volunteered to house our families during the COVID crisis: Ambler Church of the Brethren, First Presbyterian Church of Ambler, Grace Baptist Church of Blue Bell, and Jarrettown United Methodist Church.
You provide rooms for families in our emergency shelter to sleep. Food to eat. Transportation. And support…of all kinds. Volunteers from our partner congregations go above and beyond to help families feel safe and comfortable during their stay with us and we could not be more grateful.

We still need one new host congregation and a couple of new support congregations to reinforce our Interfaith Hospitality Network program
St. Matthew’s has been an integral part of our program since the very beginning, and never ceases to wow us with their generosity and hospitality.
Jarrettown United Methodist Church truly lives up to its mission statement: “to make disciples of Jesus Christ, relieve suffering, and glorify God.”
While Citylight is neither a host or a buddy congregation, they have been supporting us through small group service opportunities for the past few years.
Even the briefest interaction with the congregants at Trinity Lutheran Church in Fort Washington affirms that these are people dedicated to being welcoming to all, regardless of any boundaries or labels.
American history infuses the very ground of St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Whitemarsh. While the building itself was officially consecrated in 1881, the property has held a house of worship since 1698.
