"....joining hands to reduce homelessness."
Interfaith Outreach of Carmel:
is an organization of diverse faith communities joined together to address cooperative, constructive, and positive interaction of spiritual and practical needs in Monterey County. We have identified people experiencing homelessness as a major need; therefore, IOC provides grants to agencies with emphasis on providing housing resources. By being outreach leaders within our community our goals include aiding in creating solutions, stimulating public awareness, and raising funds to provide grants that fulfill our mission. Since its formation in May 2007, the faith communities of the IOC have joined hands to support each others' events. IOC has sponsored some events on its own also.
To further its mission to support the community, in 2010 the IOC opened a benefit shop named Joining Hands Benefit Shop in Carmel, California. The purpose of Joining Hands Benefit Shop is to be a fundraising component of IOC.
Our Thanksgiving Service is available virtually.

It is such a pleasure to include musical selections and readings by clergy from our participating Interfaith Advisory Council members and comments from some of our previous grant recipients. Due to the unusual circumstances this year, our service is presented virtually. We hope you enjoy watching it and will share it.
