How We Serve the Community
We are a Social Service non-profit serving Katy/West Houston. We have Social Service Departments that offer emergency financial assistance, Food Pantry, a Crisis Center that houses the Domestic Abuse Center and the Sexual Assault Center, and Resale Stores / Donation Centers.
How it all Began
In the early 1980’s, Katy area churches struggled to meet the changing needs of a rapidly growing population. With the downturn in the Houston economy, members of the Katy Ministerial Alliance realized that Katy churches were increasingly being asked by long time residents as well as newcomers to provide food and emergency financial resources. First United Methodist Church of Katy housed a food pantry in the church basement, and St. Bartholomew Catholic Church opened a thrift store at Avenue D and 4th Street. It was decided a unified effort would offer a more effective use of their resources, and on June 25, 1984, nine interdenominational churches incorporated as Katy Christian Ministries. Currently, KCM has 35 Coalition Churches.
In 1994 land was donated to KCM for a new operational facility. Hope for the future became a reality on February 26, 2003, when KCM had a ground breaking for their new facility. On August 14, 2004, KCM took occupancy at 5011 E. Fifth St., Katy TX 77493.
In 2009 KCM was contacted by some churches in the Fulshear/Simonton area inquiring about our services. After much prayer and with the support of the community and churches KCM opened their doors for service in Fulshear serving Fulshear, Simonton & Wallis areas in December 2009.
We are currently located at3506 Porter Road, Katy, TX 77493. This location houses Administration, Social Services, Domestic Abuse Center, and Sexual Abuse Center. In the same building at 5510 First Street, you will find the KCM Food Pantry, and the KCM Resale Store. KCM benefits clients in the Katy/West Houston area, by providing all services in one location. The service area covered by KCM reaches into three counties, Harris, Fort Bend and Waller.
KCM services are offered to everyone in our community regardless of any religious background or affiliation. We do not require participation in any religious activities in order to receive our services.
We rely on area churches, local businesses, corporations and individuals for support. There are many opportunities to get involved and to help us fulfill our mission.
