Interfaith Council of Metropolitan Washington

The Interfaith Council of Metropolitan Washington (IFC), was established in 1978 to recognize and join people of diverse faiths in an inclusive community. Over the years, IFC has helped to found the National Capital Area Food Bank and the Coalition for Homeless and Housing Organizations, among many other major efforts in the greater Washington region. Members of the organization include adherents to the Bahá’í, Buddhist, Latter-day Saints, Hindu, Jain, Jewish, Muslim, Protestant, Roman Catholic, Sikh, and Zoroastrian faiths.
