Interfaith Ministries' Refugee Services department co-hosted a successful cultural exchange program on volunteerism together with the U.S. Embassy Prague. Students from Prague and Houston discussed the significance of volunteerism and its impact on their respective communities. We shared our expertise, discussed the differences between refugee resettlement programs in both countries and the variety of ways we all engage volunteers in welcoming and supporting refugees.

Thank you and Děkuji (dye-ku-yi) to everyone that attended the virtual event including our invaluable partners like InBáze, z. s., Center for Civic Leadership at Rice University, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and University of Houston's Project TREE - Teaching Refugees Effective English.

The Strength of Shared Beliefs Continues to Guide Our Work

At Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston, civic engagement and the importance of the bonds that unite us are the heart of our values. “Dialogue, collaboration, and service,” and “the strength of shared beliefs” have guided our work and our mission for over 50 years. Over the years, we have seen our community struggle through times of civil unrest and come together in times of need. At Interfaith Ministries, we remain steadfast in our support of basic American values, knowing that we are stronger together than apart, understanding that e pluribus unum acknowledges our unity is drawn from our diversity, and recognizing that our work serving our community will continue to be grounded in the belief that encouraging and promoting civic engagement and the virtues of service to others are the hallmarks of a strong society.

The historically high turnout during this election reflects how deeply Americans of all political persuasions want their voices heard. Today’s passions must be channeled for good but could easily devolve into rancor, or worse, if we are not vigilant. Through “dialogue, collaboration, and service” we can find common ground to ensure our community’s vulnerable are cared for, our community’s hungry are fed, our community’s most insecure are reassured, and all those in need find hope and healing.

Our diverse community is bound together by both civic duty and shared principles. In the days, weeks and months ahead, Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston will continue our work of helping our community find common ground for the common good.

Please join us.

Our Story

Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston brings people of diverse faith traditions together for dialogue, collaboration and service, as a demonstration of our shared beliefs. Our core programs are: • Meals on Wheels delivers more than one million meals and more each year to 4,000+ homebound seniors in Harris, Galveston and surrounding counties. In addition, aniMeals on Wheels provides free pet food to over 1,200 dogs and cats of homebound seniors - as well as spay/neuter services, flea and tick prevention, and more! • Refugee Services, in conjunction with the U.S. State Department and Episcopal Migration Ministries, resettles hundreds of legal refugees in Houston each year. 90% of our refugees are self-sufficient within six months of arrival. • Interfaith Relations and Community Partnerships (IRCP) provides a safe harbor for greater Houston through its many interfaith programs and dialogue efforts. In fall 2017, Volunteer Houston became part of the IRCP family, matching volunteers with nonprofits across the community.

Toothaches are no fun and quite costly.. so, this may be a solution for you or someone you know. The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston offers affordable dental care by the dental students who are supervised by their faculty staff while doing the dental work. Since it’s in an educational environment, the appointments are generally longer in time than in private practice but with prices that are significantly reduced. Below you’ll see the center's link and telephone number to read more about their services or call them but if you want a more personable experience my son, Zayd, is a 2nd year student. He’s easy to talk to and will listen to what you’re going through. He can show you around the UT Health Science Center dental facilities and, if you wish, can be your personal dental caretaker. Questions??? Zayd’s direct number is (707) 500-1990. UT Health Science Center Student Clinic https://dentistry.uth.edu/patients/student-clinics/index.htm T.
