Our Saviour’s House
Our Saviour’s is a partnership house with Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church. Like other partnership houses, the congregation provides the parish housing, which is managed by Interfaith. Along with Christ the Servant Lutheran Church, the congregations take responsibility for basic home maintenance and turning around the home between families. This includes restocking items, putting together welcome baskets and everything that goes into making a house a family home.

This couple and their three children left a stable life in San Diego for a promised job opportunity in the Northwest that never materialized. Ashamed and depressed, hope seemed out of reach until they received a new start with Interfaith housing’s unique combination of a home and intensive case management.
