Interfaith Task Force on Homelessness            

The formation of the ITFH grew out of a major conference on homelessness at St. Mark’s Cathedral in April 2001, Creating the Political Will to End Homelessness. The 350 religious and community representatives who attended the conference created a 4-step Action Plan to end homelessness in King County in ten years. Action #1 of the plan envisioned the organization of a Task Force to coordinate the work of the religious community for the sole purpose of achieving the goals stated, using the theme, “Creating the political will to end homelessness in King County.”   The ITFH was officially convened in December 2001 under the auspices of St. Mark’s Cathedral. It has been meeting since that time.  In 2009, the ITFH is engaged in fulfilling its 2009 Work Plan.
