Interfaith Caring Ministries (ICM)'s goal is to strengthen Clear Lake and Friendswood one family at time by helping individuals, local families and seniors in need.
Interfaith Caring Ministries was founded in 1985 by a group of Clear Lake and League City area houses of worship concerned with the growing needs of families in the local area.Their goal was to create a centralized organization that would serve those in need, rather than the various houses of worship working to do so individually, thus minimizing overlap in assistance and maximizing effectiveness of service provision.

1991 - Started delivering groceries to homebound senior citizens, and began awarding childcare scholarships to assist single parents who were attending educational or training classes.
