Welcome!! We are delighted that you are taking time to learn about – a volunteer based non-profit organization called Indian Circle for Caring USA Inc. (ICC).  A grass root movement started in Aug. 2007  by a few individuals to respond to an unfulfilled  need to help community members as they may be going through emergency or urgent situations such as serious sickness, hospitalization, family crisis, accident or death / bereavement. As the awareness of such an organization increased, support from good hearted individuals and organizations came along.   Volunteers and members joined hands.  It transformed an idea in to reality – a vibrant volunteer run organization is now privileged of helping young and old alike. ICC and its volunteers have been serving across the boundaries of religions, languages, regions, as well as socioeconomic groups. Our model of working collaboratively and cooperatively with existing social, religious, professional and support organizations to reach out to our community has proven to be very valuable and huge benefit to community ICC serves.
