3/10/2010 – Shelter Spotlight #69

March 10, 2010


Hey Everybody And Welcome Aboard! Today we’re heading to Cheyenne, WY and setting our sights on the Cheyenne Interfaith Hospitality Network (CIHN). The CIHN provides warm meals, warmer coats and great services for the homeless and impoverished in and around the greater Cheyenne area. Under the direction of Carl Carmichael and Dr. Jason Bloomberg, the CIHN operates a tight ship with a very big heart. Since 2007, the CIHN has helped over 60,000 people and that number gets bigger and bigger by the day.

This initiative brings together community, faith community, social services, housing, and a multitude of volunteers in response to homeless families with children.  Through an achievable program of small steps and by providing shelter, meals, comprehensive assistance, and encouragement toward self-reliance in an atmosphere of hospitality and support, families with children work toward a stable living situation and the ability to provide for the needs of each family member.  CIHN partners with many community organizations to provide safe shelter for families in crisis.  Through our partnerships with United Way of Laramie County  the National Interfaith Hospitality Network/Family Promise and many other local and state agencies as well as private benefactors, we make available a caring environment providing a hand up to families in need. – from http://www.cheyenneinterfaith.org
