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 — Over the past decade, more than 1,100 IOCC volunteers have provided 35,000 man-hours to rebuild or repair 210 family homes damaged by natural disasters. This year IOCC has mobilized nine teams to help build or do critical renovations on existing homes in Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana, Minnesota, New Jersey, and Oklahoma.

EDUCATION — Since 2007, IOCC has supported literacy for children in more than 20 states by distributing almost one million new school textbooks worth $42 million to Head Start, tutoring, and after school programs for children with limited access to learning materials. The book distribution program also benefits children who are homeless or whose parents are migrant workers or in prison. IOCC has also distributed classroom and dormitory furniture to help improve the learning environment at cash strapped schools in Alaska, Colorado, and New York.
