The COVID epidemic has left many in Galveston County struggling to pay their bills and even put food on the table. Since March, Interfaith Caring Ministries, which has a center located in League City, has tripled the number of people it is serving through its food bank and assistance center. Many of the families they are helping are League City residents, and some are even previous donors to the program who are now finding themselves in need.
With the onset of COVID, Interfaith Caring Ministries has been able to increase the amount of money they provide to clients thru the help of donors and thru a COVID relief grant they are administering on behalf of the City of League City. The grant can be used to assist residents who have been directly impacted by COVID.
“We are just so thankful to League City for letting us have this opportunity to give this money away to the people here in our community,” said Suzy Domingo, Executive Director of Interfaith Caring Ministries.
If an individual is a League City resident, and lives in the Clear Creek or Friendswood school district, they may qualify for the program. Assistance is available for utility bills, such as water, gas and electric, as well as assistance with rent. Mortgage assistance is not available.
Residents will need to make an appointment by calling (281) 332-3881 and fill out an intake form that can be obtained through email, or in person at 151 N. Park Ave. in League City. After filling out the form and after providing any necessary documents, residents will be interviewed to decide what type of assistance best fits their needs.
