What began as a dream of Mr. George P. Mitchell, founder and original developer of The Woodlands to ensure every resident would find a spiritual home, has flourished into a legacy of service, with a mission to Bring People Together to Build a More Loving and Caring Community Through Service. As families moved into this flourishing community and human needs rose, Interfaith was the organization charged with developing programs to provide the social services, our most vulnerable neighbors needed to remain self-sufficient and independent. Through family and senior services, employment placement opportunities, the Interfaith Child Development Center, Hand Me Up Shop, two Veggie Village Community Gardens, community education and special projects such as Kits 4 Kidz School Supplies Assistance Programs and the Holiday GIVING Programs, Interfaith has provides upwards of 800,000 service contacts each year, impacting millions of lives since 1973. This is only possible thanks to the generosity and incredible support from the local businesses and corporations, civic organizations, schools and local neighbors who believe in our very worthy mission.
