ICC's Devoted Event Staff


"ICC is an outstanding model... there is integrity between what they claim as their mission and what they exhibit as a staff and are able to implement within the greater community. From their Youth Against Hunger Program to their Mentoring and Counseling and on to culturally based Case Management you will find large numbers of grateful clients and enthusiastic volunteers. Their work with County Government is exemplary particularly in responding to acts of hate and violence, developing a model (already gaining national attention) for the prevention and intervention of violent extremism, and working with the public school system on issues of cultural competency and religious holidays."

Rev. Mansfield Kaseman, Interfaith Community Liaison, Office of Community Partnerships, Montgomery County Government
 

The ICC prides itself in its outreach ability in collaborating with a diverse range of partners. Not only do we support and attend our partners’ events such as Good Deeds Day, but we also offer our own space, often free of charge, to host partner events, such as the Martin Luther King Day of Service and the Family Reunification Exercise. Partnering with other area nonprofits, faith communities, county agencies and community groups serves to expand and enhance the work of the ICC, fosters a healthy community spirit, and creates fabulous friendships along the way.
