Action is our middle name! Help Interfaith Action of Evanston continue to provide these crucial services (note recent changes in service due to Covid-19):

Hospitality Center-Weekday mornings throughout the year, guests receive breakfast plus job counseling and computer training needed to apply for jobs. The number of guests is currently restricted.

Soup Kitchens-Every day all year long, a meal is provided by one of the Interfaith Action member faith communities. Available to anyone who is hungry. Currently restaurant carryout meals must be purchased.

ProduceMobile-Monthly, the Greater Chicago Food Depository’s ProduceMobile, in partnership with Interfaith Action and the city of Evanston, distributes fresh fruits and vegetables. No income qualification is required. The number of people coming to the ProduceMobile has grown recently due to increased unemployment.

Overnight Emergency Shelter-Every winter night, there is a warm and safe place to sleep at one of Interfaith Action's faith communities. This spring, IAE worked with the city of Evanston and other agencies to find housing for Evanston residents experiencing homelessness during the Covid-19 quarantine.

Winter Warming Centers-Located in a rotating group of Interfaith Action faith communities, open to anyone who needs to get out of the cold on a winter afternoon.

All of these services are made possible through generous donations, grant support from City of Evanston and the Evanston Community Foundation, and many volunteer hours. Thank you!
