“WHEN I went into the Interfaith Hospitality Network Program, I was broken and discouraged. The people there saw things in me that I didn’t see. The program saved my life. There are no words to express how I feel,” said Julie Wieland.
Wieland is a graduate of the Interfaith Hospitality Network Program (IHN) in Colorado Springs and spoke to several hundred people at a recent fundraising event.
A large number of religious organizations have been involved in IHN over a long period of time, including the Colorado Springs Jewish community for at least the past 15 years. Participating churches and synagogues are considered “partner congregations” for the agency.
