IOCC IN THE USA
From its inception, IOCC's intent was to work in the U-S and abroad. It was the tragic 9/11 attacks in 2001 that brought IOCC's capacity to respond home with the creation of our U.S. Emergency Response Network.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE — IOCC's capacity to respond to emergencies in the U.S. has significantly increased as a result of the assistance from its Emergency Response Network, referred to as the "Orthodox Frontline." The Frontline is made up of Orthodox clergy and laity volunteers from across the nation – trained and experienced chaplains, counselors, therapists, emergency response managers, social workers, medical doctors, registered nurses, emergency medical technicians and other related fields.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT — As part of its longstanding commitment to volunteerism in the face of need, IOCC has provided more than 800 volunteers and almost 30,000 man-hours since 2005 building or providing critical repairs to 169 family homes across the USA damaged by natural disasters. IOCC is currently mobilizing volunteer teams for 2014 to help build or do critical renovations on existing homes this summer in New Orleans, New Jersey, Maryland, Oklahoma, and Colorado.

SUPPORTING LITERACY AND EDUCATION — Since 2007, IOCC has provided more than 900,000 new elementary and secondary textbooks worth a total of $40 million to after school, tutoring and Head Start programs for children in underserved areas in more than 20 states, including California, Louisiana, Alabama, Maryland, Michigan, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, and New York. The book distribution program also benefits homeless children and those whose parents are migrant workers or are incarcerated.
