Interfaith Older Adult Programs was founded in 1973 by several congregations on Milwaukee's East Side who were concerned about isolated elders. These congregations pooled their resources to more effectively reach out to isolated elders. The Interfaith Neighborhood Outreach Program is the direct descendant of those early efforts. Interfaith Older Adult Programs, Inc. (then Interfaith Program for the Elderly) incorporated in 1975. Since then Interfaith has replicated those early efforts of Milwaukee's East Side to provide a countywide Neighborhood Outreach Program with 14 offices supported by 200 congregations.
Since 1975, Interfaith has established many other programs focusing on quality services, social opportunities, and valuable resources to enhance the welfare of older adults and family caregivers who support them.
