IHN

Cornerstone helps end homelessness, one family at a time, through Family Promise of Grand Rapids and the IHN Ministry (Interfaith Hospitality Network). For over 20 years Cornerstone has been a host congregation, providing food, friendship and shelter for families in a housing crisis, one week at a time, up to four times each year.

How You Can Help

You can help by donating food, or a couple hours of your time on-site at the 84th Street Campus. Each IHN rotation has two possible sign ups – one for Food Donations, and one for On-Site Volunteers.

Donate Food or Supplies

We have a list of food and supply needs for the families at IHN for the week. You can choose what you'd like to donate when signing up. Some examples include:

  • Fruit: Bananas, Apples
  • Supplies: Detergent, Containers, Cups
  • Meijer Gift Cards
  • Food: Cereal, Eggs, Bread, Popcorn

See below for signups.

Volunteer On-Site

You can volunteer at the 84th Street Campus by:

  • Setting up or tearing down the family living areas.
  • Bringing in and serving a meal.
  • Playing with the kids.
  • Sleeping at the church as an overnight host (you’ll have your own room).
