Many of the items donated in the past have been featured in the Boutique area of the ICM Resale Shop. The ICM Resale Shop is located at the corner of Bay Area Blvd and Hwy 3 (118 W Bay Area Blvd in Webster). Proceeds from the ICM Resale Shop help fund the many programs of ICM.

ICM's role in the community

Interfaith Caring Ministries is an assistance coalition supported by businesses, organizations, churches and individuals. A 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, ICM is celebrating 21 years of serving our neighbors in need.

The mission of ICM is not only to help people in crisis, but also to facilitate their path to self-sufficiency. For the year ending June 30, 2006, ICM provided services to over 3000 families who live within the Clear Creek Independent School District. Additionally, ICM helped over 2300 families that were displaced in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita last fall with food, clothing and gasoline vouchers.
