Impact and Programs

Accomplishments Delivering Services: Interfaith Outreach delivers holistic services to help our community meet their basic needs and to equip individuals and families for ongoing stability. Engaging Stakeholders and Partners: Interfaith Outreach engages program participants, community partners, and volunteers in addressing complex socio-economic community issues, leveraging resources (money, tangible goods, time, and expertise), building mutually beneficial relationships, creating a welcoming and inclusive community experience, and enhancing overall service delivery and impact. Discovering community needs and opportunities: During the 2023 fiscal year, our focus was on food, emergency financial assistance, and welcoming new clients. As an outcome of the new strategic plan, we conducted market research to identify and understand current community needs and define the service gaps to be addressed in future years.
Current Goals For 45 years, Interfaith Outreach & Community Partners (IOCP), a human services nonprofit organization, has addressed barriers that keep families from stabilizing in suburban west Hennepin County. These include lack of affordable housing, low-wage employment, food insecurity, costly early childhood education, limited access to reliable transportation and community resources. Most clients seek our services to address emergencies or unmet basic needs such as food and rent and stay engaged with the organization to work toward increased housing and financial stability. Our services focus on Basic Needs (information and referral, food, clothes, emergency financial assistance) and Stability Services (individual support, jobs, early childhood support, youth program access and healthy neighborhoods). BASIC NEEDS INCLUDE: Information and referral, Food (onsite choice based, SuperShelf Food Shelf and home delivery), Clothes (onsite Resale Select quality thrift store), Support to connect with safety resources and shelter, and Emergency financial assistance to maintain housing, utilities and transportation STABILITY SERVICES INCLUDE: Case Management, Housing Navigation Services, Employment Services, Permanent Supportive Housing, Neighborhood Program (services embedded within 9 housing communities (Plymouth/Medina), and Caring for Kids (supports early childhood development via childcare scholarships, parent education, mental health support, case management and basic needs services)
