International Orthodox Christian Charities, Inc. IOCC, based in Baltimore, Maryland, was established in March 1992 as the official international humanitarian organization of the Standing Conference of the Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas (SCOBA), now known as the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of North and Central America. Since its inception, IOCC has distributed $438 million USD in emergency relief and development assistance to families and communities in more than 50 countries. IOCC does not provide funds for Church missions such as religious education or missionary work. All funds collected by the agency (minus administrative expenses) are instead used for humanitarian aid.

IOCC has received a rating of four stars from Charity Navigator, the highest rating the organization awards.[1]

IOCC is a member of ACT Alliance,a global coalition of more than 130 churches and agencies engaged in development, humanitarian assistance and advocacy, and a member of InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S.–based secular and faith-based organizations working to improve the lives of the world’s most poor and vulnerable populations.
