Though not open to guests indoors since March 2020, the Interfaith Nutrition Network (The INN) keeps its food, job, housing, and mental health assistance programs running in new ways.
Although the pandemic has been a shock to the region and the world, the determination of volunteers and staff members at The INN to aid those in need never wavered.
The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) is a volunteer-based nonprofit whose mission is to address hunger and homelessness on Long Island by providing food, shelter, long-term housing and supportive services for all those in need. It operates a network of 14 soup kitchens, in 21 locations, serving more than 300,000 meals annually. It runs three emergency shelters in Nassau County—two designated as refuges for homeless families, the other for homeless men. The INN provides 23 formerly homeless families with long-term housing throughout Long Island, offers housing and supportive services to homeless veterans, and works to resolve homelessness overall and ultimately empower families’ self-sufficiency. The INN’s latest facility, its Center for Transformative Change (CTC), is a one-stop resource center helping individuals successfully navigate multi-tiered, multi-agency services so crucial for the homeless, unemployed or destitute to get back on their feet.
The Interfaith Nutrition Network (The INN), Long Island Cares and Island Harvest work year-round to help hungry and homeless Long Island families in need.
