It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our Board of Directors Vice President and longtime IHNSC volunteer, Bill Jonat. A congregant of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of Somerville, Bill exemplified volunteer excellence. His dedication to serving homeless families was rooted in his love for his community.

With his always friendly phone greeting of “Hello IHN” to his twenty-eight year role as the volunteer coordinator at Good Shepherd, Bill’s easy-going demeanor, caring nature and passion for service benefited many throughout Somerset County. Whether it was organizing projects for the day center or advocating in the community for the IHN mission, Bill was always dependable in helping us meet the needs of homeless and low-income families. He took his commitment to IHNSC even further by serving as our Board Vice President since 2016.

We extend our most sincere condolences to Bill’s family, friends and congregation as we remember a man whose devotion to ensuring human dignity motivated all who had the privilege of knowing him.

With Much Gratitude,
Alyssa Martini
Executive Director
