Interfaith Compassion Ministry

Interfaith Compassion Ministry (ICM) assists individuals and families through crisis situations by providing for their basic needs: food, shelter, utilities, medications, and transportation. ICM is our community’s primary agency that assists homeless people by providing counseling, temporary housing, food, and stabilization in new living arrangements. The United Way of Oxford & Lafayette County helps fund ICM's Homeless Client Assistance and Indigent Client Assistance programs. The Homeless Client Assistance program provides for the basic needs of homeless individuals, including but not limited to counseling, food, temporary housing, and ultimately, safe, affordable residences. The Indigent Client Assistance program seeks to assist local families with basic needs (rent, utilities, food, medical care, transportation to jobs, etc.), help stabilize them, prevent homelessness, and provide counseling, which may include prioritizing financial decisions.
