About the Interfaith Housing and Community Services

Interfaith Housing and Community Services seeks to alleviate poverty and build community through housing assistance, financial education and individual empowerment.

We envision communities where people have achieved financial self-sufficiency, and housing that is affordable to their level of income, accessible to their level of need — where they can live in safety with dignity.

Our Story

In 1989, Helen Rosenblad attended a housing meeting in Hutchinson, Kansas and saw that people who were unable to maintain their homes were falling through the cracks. She assembled people from churches throughout the community to work together and meet those needs.

For nearly 30 years, Interfaith has been lending a helping hand. We have crossed religious barriers and connected those with a need to those who have a desire and ability to fill that need. From a small group of faithful, ripples of change and transformation can be seen in the tangible changes and subtle difference in lives and homes across our communities.

Our desire to serve the under-served has not changed over the years, but the way we do has. Not only do we work to meet immediate housing and safety needs, but we also work with clients to move past current situations, toward stability and financial security.
