Community Health Worker | Part Time

The Hope International for Community Development (HICD) is a faith based organization. Our mission is to assist the poor with sustainable programs to progress. Our clients include needy individuals, refugees and families from the community. Current programs offered by HICD includes: Hunger ministry, job placement, and social service assistance. The Agency also offers referral services, and works to educate the community about various welfare resources. The Hunger ministry is done with the partnership of local churches and from 2011 each year HICD has distributed food to 2000 individuals. Through the Hurricane Harvey Project we have provided food, basic needs and rental assistance to several evacuees. The HICD Founder Samuel Rajkumar works as Director of the agency. A Board of Directors with 6 volunteer members guides the HICD.
