Volunteer Training

The Interfaith Hospitality Network values the many volunteers that participate in our congregational shelter program, After School Program and other IHN events.  


To ensure that you and our guests have a safe and positive experience, please review the attached document prior to volunteering in the congregational shelter program or at other IHN activities and events. 


If you have any questions, please contact Angie Benedict at 973-746-1400 or via email.

Bicycle Donations Keep Memory Alive

For the past five years, many IHN children have received their own bicycles thanks to Mike’s Bikes, a yearly donation program initiated by Mike’s daughter, Merrill Silver.
