Inextricably Linked to Each Other
Project Home family hosted at Roseville Lutheran Church.
By Randi Ilyse Roth, Executive Director
We come together from many faith and spiritual traditions. We come together from many different places on the political spectrum. The list of issues and beliefs that divide us is long. However, as we look to the future, let’s focus on what we share.
Our faiths share rootedness in our connection to each other. We are linked to each other. We are in covenant with each other. We cannot look away from our neighbors’ struggles—we need to roll up our sleeves and do what we can to help our community.
At Interfaith Action, we join forces with thousands of volunteers to provide meaningful hospitality to families facing homelessness. Through our after-school programs, we infuse children with confidence and deep connectedness to their own culture and history. Through our emergency services program, we provide essential support and resources for more than two thousand people. In our new Opportunity Corps program, we will provide more ways for community members to engage in learning and volunteer work in effective local nonprofits to make a difference in our community.
We strengthen our effectiveness by building a culture of evaluation. Expert evaluators help us understand what we do well and how we can improve. Evaluation allows us to become the best possible stewards of our resources and to learn what really works for the people we serve.
Interfaith Action is a place for people of many different faiths to come together and draw on their common faith roots to build the community we all envision—a community filled with fairness, justice, mercy, and opportunity. We are so grateful that you support Interfaith Action and join us in this amazing work.
