                    COVID-19 Response


We have developed our response to the novel Coronavirus with measures unprecedented for our organization. 

Please view our updated response plan here.

We are committed to the health of our community and welcome any feedback. If you have any concerns not covered in our response, please let us know

This crisis has placed our shelter in a uniquely challenging position. Please consider donating items on our needs list if you are able. If you choose to provide much needed financial assistance for us and our

families, please use the PayPal button here:

Take care of yourself and families during this challenging time. We will continue to be here for the families who encounter housing challenges during the epidemic.

Income Taxes TY2019


Due to events outside of our control, IHNWC will be unable to file your income taxes in 2020 (for tax year 2019). The Ohio Benefit Bank, the provider for our tax and benefit services, was defunded and is no longer offering services.

We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause for you. IHNWC is actively seeking a provider for tax year 2020. Please check with us prior to next year's filing window to see if we can assist you in the future. Currently, qualifying individuals can have their returns prepared for free from VITA and AARP.

It is also possible to file your own taxes online. There are several services available. We recommend trying TurboTax, although certain situations may require you to pay (most individuals who have filed at IHNWC in the past will not be charged anything).

Family Promise 4 Star Streak Continues!

Family Promise is IHNWC's parent affiliation. They were awarded with their 7th consecutive 4 star rating by Charity Navigator.

A 4-star-rating, which is Charity Navigator's highest designation, demonstrates Family Promise's commitment to financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency.

Only 6% of the nonprofits evaluated by Charity Navigator have received at least 7 consecutive 4-star evaluations, indicating that Family Promise outperforms most other charities in America.
