Interfaith offers programs throughout North San Diego County, from the coastal City of Oceanside to inland communities south and east of our Escondido headquarters. With more than 5,321 volunteers in direct service, more than 400 member faith centers, and 102 dedicated staff, Interfaith served 35,800 unique persons with a variety of services just last year. Our staff and volunteers reflect the cultural diversity of each community where we offer programs.
Interfaith's annual budget exceeds $12 million, and Interfaith's overhead costs, defined as management and fundraising, are only 8.9%. We have successfully managed millions of dollars from numerous federal, state, county and municipal grants. Interfaith has also been part of national studies by Columbia University and the University of Houston, which have measured and touted the exceptional efforts of Interfaith as national models for welfare reform (Columbia University) and faith-based community development (University of Houston). he Coalition Ministries and Congregations Study completed by Houston was, in fact, funded in part by the Lilly Endowment.
