Interfaith for the homeless announces community grants

  AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) Fourteen area non-profits received some extra help to combat homelessness in Amarillo. The Interfaith Campaign for the Homeless fundraising efforts and contributions from local congregations were also matched by the Katherine E. Brady Fund, a component fund of the Amarillo Area Foundation.

The past two years were trying times for ICH as less and less churches are donating in years past.

 In 2014 and 2015, only eight communities of faith donated to the ICH. This year, 11 area churches participated. They presented checks to nonprofits that help the homeless community transition into self-sustainability The overall goal is to get various communities of faith together to support the growing issue of homelessness.
