Formed in 2001 under St. Mark's Cathedral Seattle, we've been subsequently hosted by The Church Council of Greater Seattle, and since 2009 by St. Luke's Lutheran Church, Bellevue WA. It is via St. Luke's that we are able to operate as a 501(c)3, aligned as it is with the Northwest WA Synod, ELCA. We thus work and appreciate being a ministry of St. Luke's and are "in residence at St. Luke's" as an expression of their outreach. Our accounting and banking are done by St. Luke's.
The Interfaith Task Force on Homelessness (ITFH) is composed of individuals representing religious congregations, religious and secular organizations which work toward preventing and ending homelessness. Most of our membership spans much of the religious community, including Christian, Unitarian, Jewish, and Muslim. We reach out to all sectors of the faith community to join us in action and to support us morally and financially. More than this, we work as colleagues with all who seek to alleviate the harm of homelessness.
