Beginning in 1991, several area churches came together to provide multiple services under one roof in a central downtown location. The churches pooled resources, freeing their own church ministers and staff from providing fragmented services. Interfaith was officially chartered by the State of Texas in October of 1992 as the Social Action Committee and the name was changed in 1993 to Interfaith Ministries of Denton, Inc.
Today, Interfaith serves over 3,000 people a year as the primary resource for emergency basic needs assistance in Northern Denton County with the goal of helping those people to become self-sufficient. We are still supported by several area faith-based affiliates as well as individual donors, the United Way of Denton County, contracts, grant funding, and other special events.
