In 1983, the religious pastoral community in Marion County saw a need to provide emergency assistance to individuals and families in crisis. With a minimal group of workers, Interfaith Emergency Services was given birth. For more than 3 decades, Interfaith has continued to serve the people of Marion County with sincere Christian love and caring devotion.
Interfaith is governed by a Board of Directors with representatives from clergy, social services, business and other community leaders, who volunteer their expertise and leadership to obtain our goal of offering assistance and comfort to those who have fallen between the cracks of the social service system. The Board of Directors ensure the ethical practices of our non-profit as well as the financial sustainability of the organization.
