The 5th Annual Community Care Auction

Serving low-income and financially vulnerable people in Centre County through diverse programs that foster financial stability.

At Interfaith Human Services, we provide families and individuals with resources and guidance on their finances to work toward monthly management instead of crisis control.

A hand up, not a handout

At Interfaith Human Services, we have been investing in our community for more than 50 years by providing financial education programs to our clients. More than helping them pay rent, we teach them to work within a budget to achieve financial stability.

Give your neighbors a sense of self-worth

Whatever the cause of financial instability, whether it’s illness, divorce or simply ignorance, the people we serve gain awareness and tools to better manage their money. We bring people from a place of hopelessness to a place of empowerment.

Build up our community by stabilizing families

Our programs work to break cycles of crisis and help clients to work toward achieving self-sufficiency. When we help families get back on their feet, we empower them to become stable, productive members of our community.
