The Interfaith Hospitality Network is a 24/7 homeless shelter for families in need through out Lorain County. 25 congregations provide shelter, food, and most importantly, hospitality to homeless children and their families. Christ Church partners with Mount Zion Baptist Church when they host the group, which is three or four times a year. There is an ongoing need for volunteers to help serve dinner, spend the evening hours playing with the children, or stay overnight. Christ Church also provides lunch materials for the families.
