  • Description: Iredell Christian Ministries (ICM) has been helping people in need throughout Iredell County since they opened their doors in 2007. During 2005 and 2006, the downtown churches in Statesville were noticing a steady increase in individuals coming directly to church offices requesting food, clothing and financial assistance for shelter, transportation, utility bills and medications. Churches and agencies in the area could not keep up with the need. Leaders from several churches began working together to develop a way that they could consolidate services and funds to meet the needs. The result was a volunteer-run organization which would work with the families on a one-on-one basis, keep track of their needs and current status and assist with crisis needs as well as long term needs. By drawing volunteers from fifteen church congregations and the community at large, and by developing a relationship with the Second Harvest Food Bank of NW North Carolina and with donated funds along with the assistance of local grocery stores, ICM was born. ICM was originally set up to assist 100 families a month. Today, Iredell Christian Ministries serves close to 800 families per month!
