About

Interfaith of The Woodlands is a non-profit social service agency providing numerous programs and services to meet the needs of The Woodlands and the surrounding area. What began as a dream of Mr. George P. Mitchell, founder and original developer of The Woodlands, flourished into a reality and is helping thousands of individuals and families each year.

Today, Interfaith’s mission continues to be based on Mr. Mitchell’s vision and Interfaith’s ongoing commitment to making a difference and being a multi-faceted community resource. Initially, Interfaith acts as an “incubator” for community social services and as a “support” for new congregations. Interfaith helps individuals and families in crisis through financial assistance for rent, mortgage, utilities, gasoline, prescription drug assistance, emergency shelter, food, clothing, senior programs and offers counseling, job training, and child care.

True to its mission, Interfaith works with member congregations, corporations, local businesses, individuals, nonprofits and organizations acting as a community resource and building a more loving and caring community.
