IAM makes adjustments to continue crisis services

Interfaith Assistance Ministry will continue to serve struggling Henderson County residents with crisis services by implementing precautionary measures to keep our neighbors, volunteers and staff as safe as possible during this rapidly evolving coronavirus pandemic.


Intake workers will conduct short interviews via phone with neighbors who come to IAM’s parking lot at 310 Freeman St., Hendersonville, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Arrive by 3:30 p.m. at the latest for services.

"IAM will continue to help local residents in these ways as long as we have enough volunteers and staff to stay open", said Elizabeth Willson Moss, IAM's executive director. “We are providing volunteers and staff with gloves and we are cleaning our work surfaces hourly. We will continue operations as long as possible and adhere to government health regulations.”

The agency's services include seven days’ worth of food, 3 meals a day, for every member of a family, rent assistance to prevent homelessness, utility bill assistance: power, gas, heating fuel and water, prescription assistance, personal hygiene items, towels, sheets and blankets, clothing, including new underwear and socks, bus tickets, gasoline vouchers, and pet food
