The mission of East Hartford Interfaith Ministries is three-fold:
to identify and respond to human needs in our town,
to combine the resources of our member religious congregations for social service ministries that we could not support, as well, individually,
to encourage cooperation among the religious citizens of East Hartford by sponsoring interfaith observances, such as Community Thanksgiving Worship and gatherings for Community Prayer.
Member congregations make an annual donation to the work of EHIM and send delegates to meetings of the Board of Directors. The Board meets six times each year.
East Hartford Interfaith Ministries is a 501(c)(3) organization.
Other critical support is received through private individuals, corporations, charitable trusts, public grants, and United Way. The United Way designation number for EHIM is A69127.
