Dear friends,

We celebrate our 40th Anniversary with jump-and-shout thanks for you and for all of the literally thousands of just-in-time people and partners and miracles that have come together to build a community we can all be proud of. We've dubbed this 40-year milestone: 

Our Community. Our Home. 40 Years Together. 

Emphasis together. If we've learned anything along the way, it's that it does take a whole village to raise our children and that, together, we can and we are building a welcoming, responsive, inclusive, healing community for all who make their home with us. 

At the same time, we recognize a need to plan for the organizational structure and leadership that will keep our shared vision and mission alive and well into the future. A goal of Interfaith's 2019-21 Strategic Plan is to complete organizational succession planning. Read more about this exciting change.   More >

A 40th Anniversary night to remember

This month, 500 people packed the McNamara Alumni Center in support of local families and kids. The 40th Anniversary Spread Your Wings Gala and the newly created Founders Fund raised just over $1.7 million so far. It is more than we ever imagined! Just think about the relationships we can build, the collaborative partnerships we can forge, and the much-needed services we can provide together because of this community's generous support. Thank you! Cheers to another 40 years!


40th Anniversary - so much to celebrate!



At the 40th Anniversary Spread Your Wings Gala, Interfaith Outreach also launched the Founders Fund, a special fund dedicated to three growing edges of our work: affordable housing, cradle-to-career educational opportunities for all kids, and mental health services.

Learn more about our 40th Anniversary activities or give online to this special Founders Fund.




Last chance to brighten a special holiday for our neighbors!

Show your care and compassion for our Muslim friends during the Eid Holiday Program. When Ramadan ends in early June, our neighbors celebrate "breaking fast" by buying clothing for their children and creating cherished memories at family entertainment venues. We hope to provide $50 per person in gift cards to help alleviate holiday financial stress. ( If  giving online , scroll to the bottom and select "Direct my gift to" to choose "Eid Holiday Program"; if giving by check, include in the memo line.) Thank you for creating joy for our neighbors celebrating this special holiday!
