Shelter from the storm

early every evening in Gainesville, one of 13 houses of worship converts its fellowship hall or classrooms into a warm, inviting place for homeless families and expectant women.

Volunteers bring cooked meals to serve guests, who arrive from school, work or from a day of looking for work. Coffee brews in the kitchen and there are sounds of laughter from children. 

These are the sights and sounds of the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN), which provides shelter, food and transportation to homeless families with children.    - More
