We are thrilled to welcome Interfaith's new Executive Director, Kevin Ward! Our new leader has a passion for our mission and an outstanding record of leadership in both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. While the pandemic prevents the kind of gathering we'd all wish to welcome Kevin, opportunities to connect with him will be developed and communicated as we enter the new year ahead. Until then, get to know a bit more about our new leader by watching a recent fireside chat with Kevin and LaDonna.

Meet Kevin

The Sleep Out campaign is 66% to its goal of raising $2.6 million before Dec. 31. We're excited to announce a new match for gifts made this month up to $40,000. Please give online to prevent homelessness for our neighbors and keep the momentum going strong! When you take action by donating, fundraising, sleeping out (or in), or planting a yard sign - we’ll add a star to our Sleep Out night sky in your honor. As of the last update, we have 1,346 stars to brighten the sky! Check back now through Dec. 31 to watch the sky light up with our collective compassion.

Throughout her life, Britta McGuire has done service projects for Interfaith Outreach, many related to the food shelf. But she tells us it wasn’t until she joined a women’s networking group that she learned food is really only the tip of the iceberg of services Interfaith provides. She says, “It’s a place I know my time and financial contributions are directly benefiting my neighbors.”
