Eau Claire Interfaith Hospitality Network, Inc.
Serving families and pregnant women who are temporarily homeless or at risk of homelessness by providing resources for emergency assistance, stabilization, and prevention.
Last night you probably slept in your own bed in your own home or apartment. Today you woke up, got dressed, ate breakfast and went about your day. Unfortunately, many families in the Eau Claire area don't have this luxury. For these families, "home" is a car, tent, or the floor or couch of a friend.
The downturn in the economy has affected everyone. As a result, the demand for ECIHN's services has increased.
