Windham Area Interfaith Ministry

Uplifting and uniting our community by providing caring services and resources to meet our neighbors’ needs with dignity and respect.

WAIM (Windham Area Interfaith Ministry) provides basic needs and support to area residents with insufficient income. Our goal is to keep people safely housed, meet basic material needs and connect them to resources that sustain their stability.

Our Programs

Emergency Financial Assistance

Hosmer Mountain Soda is a local gem.

When you visit their store on Mountain Street in Willimantic you'll see the jar filled with money on the counter as you check out.

They have been collecting money in this jar for local non-profit organizations for years.

It was a pleasant surprise when they called today and said that they had been collecting for WAIM.

Executive Director Susan Hunter stopped by and was given the $260 that they raised.

She also bought some of her son's favorite soda, Hosmer Mountain orange, to bring home.

When you stop in and support this local business, make sure you put some money in the jar. This month they are collecting money for Windham Region No Freeze Project.

Thank you to Hosmer Mountain Soda and everyone who filled the jar! We are grateful and appreciative of your support!
