IFTS (God is Faithful Temporary Shelter) was born in 2007 when a group of concerned Janesville citizens saw an unmet need in our community. Women and children without shelter had options available to them, however homeless men had nowhere to go. These concerned citizens first met in early fall, and on Christmas Eve 2007, the shelter opened with 4 cooperating churches. Today 38 churches are involved in the operation of the shelter.
