Financial Crisis Assistance

Interfaith's Programs and Services strive to enhance each client's self-sufficiency while strengthening their inherent dignity and self-worth. We help with the following financial crisis assistance programs: Financial Assistance-payment toward rent, mortgage and utilities; Food Pantry Assistance-non-perishable food and fresh produce distributed to individuals and families; Prescription Drug Assistance-prescription drug funding for those without medical insurance; Gasoline Assistance-gasoline vouchers; Clothing Vouchers-client vouchers to be used at Interfaith's Hand Me Up Shop; Emergency Shelter-short term shelter for those who have a documented plan to achieve permanent housing; School Supplies - providing children with individual school and grade specific supplies; Holiday Gift Assistance-gifts to families and seniors; and Informational Programs and Workshops-hosts educational opportunities to enhance quality of life for individuals and families.

Population(s) Served

Each family or single client is eligible to receive Food Pantry items once a month. The amount of groceries provided depends on the size of the family. Baby food/formula, diapers and baby care items are also available to families with infants. Frozen meats, bread, dairy products, personal hygiene items and laundry soap are distributed when available. Fresh produce is cultivated and distributed to clients by the Community Donation Garden (Veggie Village). Interfaith's Nutrition Every Weekend student food assistance program provides backpacks filled with child friendly, non-perishable food to students who are at risk of food insecurity outside the classroom. These are distributed every weekend during the school year. School counselors work with Interfaith Food Pantry Coordinator to identify students and distribute the backpacks filled with food. The Senior Grocery Delivery Program provides an individual set of non-perishable food items along with fresh produce to home-bound seniors. Age, transportation limitations and residence in the service area are the only requirements for enrollment in this program.

Population(s) Served

The goal of the Interfaith School Supplies Program is to increase the likelihood that local children succeed in school, regardless of their socioeconomic status. With the help of donors and volunteers, Interfaith provides students in kindergarten through high school with a new backpack, complete school supplies kit specific to their particular grade level/school, and a new outfit for the first day of school. Due to financial crises at home, these students might not otherwise receive the items necessary to equip them with the tools for success when classes begin. By starting each student off with necessary school supplies, no child will be hindered from succeeding in the classroom, regardless of the financial challenges their families may experiencing at home.

Population(s) Served

Interfaith of The Woodlands Senior Services goal is to enhance the quality of life for adults as they age by enabling them to maintain their health, well-being, independence, and participation in the community. Interfaith provides innovative programs in health, social service, spiritual support and education for seniors. Interfaith Social Work programs include: Transportation- provides rides to medical appointments and the grocery store; Benefits Counseling- assists with Medicare and Medicaid enrollment, drug plan choices, Food Stamps and other community programs; Interfaith Grocery Delivery Program- provides groceries delivered each month to eligible homebound seniors; and Information & Referral resources. Interfaith Wellness Programs include Music & Worship Services, Recreation Activities, Senior Community Games, Informational Programs and Special Events/Parties. Social isolation and loneliness are often considered to be problems of growing older. As people age, social interaction may become due to mobility difficulties and increased chronic illness. Interfaith programs improve the quality of life for older adults.

Population(s) Served

Interfaith of The Woodlands provides emergency disaster assistance to individuals in South Montgomery and North Harris Counties affected by disasters. Interfaith's doors open as soon as it is safe for staff and volunteers.
