InterFaith Shelter Network provides housing and a hand up for homeless men, women and children in Sonoma County in an atmosphere of dignity, respect and kindness; towards an outcome of empowerment, self-sufficiency and independence.
All IFSN Programs adhere to the Housing First Model and strive to assist individuals in permanently resolving homelessness.
IFSN employs the main types of homeless intervention: Transitional Housing, Joint Transitional-Rapid ReHousing & Rapid ReHousing Programs.
- Transitional Housing is available for individuals being supervised by Sonoma County Probation, single male Veterans & some space for individuals referred by Coordinated Entry
- Joint Transitional-Rapid ReHousing Programs are available for families involved with Sonoma County Family Youth & Children Services & homeless individuals on GA that are applying to disability benefits
- Rapid ReHousing Programs are available to individuals/families that are homeless and referred by Coordinated Entry & individuals that are experiencing homelessness who have previously spent time in a CA State Prison
- Coordinated Entry Access Points operated by IFSN focus on the following: Sonoma Valley and surrounding areas; Family, Youth & Children Services involved people, Reentry Populations. All CE Access Points are currently operating remotely due to COVID-19
- IFSN’s Clinical Team includes both LMFT and LCSW Supervisors as well as a team of Clinical Interns at various levels of experience and backgrounds. IFSN is proud to provide psychotherapy services to any people utilizing IFSN services and their families for free and indefinitely
All programs require a referral in order for services to initiate. Once IFSN receives a referral, the assessment process begins to ensure that both the agency and the individual/family referred are able to get questions answered and understand next steps.
IFSN Programs are grant and contract funded.

InterFaith Shelter Network (IFSN) is a public benefit 501(c)(3) born in 1989 in the hearts of philanthropic men and women who recognized a growing need for homeless shelter and services in Sonoma County, and formed to proactively identify and address those needs.
Experience compelled us to do more…and steered IFSN’s course specifically towards the development and of the Transitional Housing Program (THP). The plan was implemented in April of 1999 with the opening of “Wesley House”. We currently manage ten transitional houses as well as one permanent-living house.
From our grass–roots beginning through today–each program and service provided has been strategically developed to meet the needs of the homeless. IFSN’s comprehensive case management, mental health care, and long–standing collaborations with our fellow community and mainstream service providers insure successful transitions. From homelessness to self–sufficiency and independence, our agency guides homeless men and women through a process of steps which promote physical, mental, emotional and fiscal stabilization, rehabilitation, education, employment, parent/child/family reunification, successful transition to the mainstream and permanent housing!
