I began volunteering at the KCM food pantry to help fill my days after my wife’s death. It quickly became apparent that it’s a Labor of love for the staff and the many volunteers that help so many in need in our community. I’m honored and blessed to be able to contribute to such a worthy organization and have fun doing it!

KCM is a fantastic organization that ministers to people in their time of need. Working at the Food Pantry throughout the Covid epidemic has shown me the compassion and caring staff and volunteers and the tremendous need in our community. KCM is a vital ministry and meets many other needs besides food insecurity through Social Services and the Crisis Center.

Our senior group gathers sample size toiletries and personal care items for KCM’s Crisis Center. The caring folks we have dealt with have been very helpful in educating our group on how we can get hundreds of seniors involved in the project. They have been most appreciative of our efforts. We feel a part of the team each time we do a collection. We are proud to be associated with KCM.

I came to Katy Texas from Boston Massachusetts. I was very involved with Boston cares when I lived there. I was lost when I moved here trying to give back and help those in need. KCM kept coming up in my search. I started volunteering in late 2018 and loved being a part of this family of people. KCM had been a true blessing to my life.

My story is very personal & so very hard to talk about but here goes. I was in nursing for almost 18 years & 3 yrs ago I fell & broke my back & my tail bone in half & had to have surgery & have my tail bone removed & then 4 back surgeries which led to me needing to go on disability & now for the last 3 yrs I have not been able to work & will never be able to work again. Then this past January 2021 I was shot & raped by someone I thought I could trust & this has forever changed my life for the worse & sent me into a huge depression. Due to these events I lost everything including my apartment for me & my children. Now being homeless & no vehicle & 3 kids it has been the roughest point in my life. I have been trying to pay for hotels for us every night & couch surfing because living on Social Security Disability my income is limited & it’s very hard to come up with the money to get us into a new home so we can start to live again like we once were. Any help for us would be a blessing. Thank u in advance and God bless.

I have volunteered many places in my 60+ years but my favorite is by far Katy Christian Ministries. I have had the honor to work in the Food Pantry and the KCM Resale shop on Kingsland. The staff has such a heart for helping people and go out of their way to be Christ’s hands and feet in the world!

I have had the great privilege of volunteering at both the KCM Food pantry and the KCM Kingsland resale shop. I have been doing volunteer work for over 42 years including being on boards including the Junior League of Houston and have gone on over 21 mission trips both locally and abroad. I have never seen a more dedicated staff at all the locations that manage to gracefully maneuver through ever changing economic and financial situations. The staff managed to deal daily with clients and volunteers that often have their own frustrations without ever losing sight of the values of KCM. A remarkable gem in the Katy area!!

Katy Christian Ministries is known as the best non-profit social service in the Katy, West Houston, Fulshear, and Simonton areas of Texas. I needed to donate several large and small items after moving to TX from Michigan and everyone told me to give to Katy Christian Ministries because, they will do the best in finding who needs it the most. They are always amazing people, especially after catastrophic events and when people are in dire need.

I was introduced to Katy Christian Ministries while in search of a volunteer opportunity after Hurricane Harvey.
From the very first moment of entering the doors of this most wonderful mission I felt an amazing sense of fellowship and community.
Katy Christian goes above and beyond to create a compassionate and secure environment for those in need,
changing lives one person at a time.
Thank you for all that you do KCM!!!

KCM does so much to help the Katy Area Community. I am always happy to donate, or contribute to the ministry because 90% of KCM revenues goes directly to helping people in need of the services they offer.

Katy Christian Ministries continually amazes me with all the things they do for the community! The staff and volunteers are top-notch, caring individuals serving our people through the counseling and crisis services they offer through their Social Services, Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault Centers, Food Pantry, and the 2 great resale stores.
Unfortunately with Hurricane Harvey and now Covid-19, the need continues to grow in our area, and KCM continually looks to how they can better serve the community.

Moving from Canada, I found KCM through an internet search and started volunteering. I found that not only did they do amazing works throughout the community, but the staff is so incredibly committed to the satisfaction of their clients, volunteers and fellow staff members. I enjoy volunteering/working here and would recommend them as a charity of choice to anyone who asks! Great job Deysi and team!!

Katy Christian Ministries has created a fountain of love and generosity that spills into Katy and our surrounding communities. They are a constant band of goodwill offering multi-avenues of support with sincere and devoted hearts. Although several organizations drive the cycle of charitable giving, Katy Christian Ministries continues to be a front runner through their constant contact and fellowship in the community. The passionate drive they exhibit is nothing short of exemplary.

KCM is a great ministry to support! They keep their mission first, and the money supports the local community. 90% of your donation goes to the programs and they don’t charge to use their services. You can also find great stuff in their resale stores and the money from your purchase benefits the ministry.

KCM does so very much for the Katy/West Houston Community! KCM's Crisis Center assists those affected by domestic abuse and sexual abuse by providing support, education, and resources to meet the needs of survivors in the community and surrounding areas. Did you know we have a 24/7 hotline for domestic and sexual abuse? [Domestic Abuse Hotline: 281.391.HELP(4357) and Sexual Abuse Hotline: 281.693.RAPE(7273)]

We also provide a host of social services and have a food pantry as well! KCM now has 2 resale stores which help to raise funds as well as provide items for its clients in need! This is only a small taste of all that we do!

We have many events that help the community that you can get involved in! You can participate in, donate to or volunteer for! Or you can do all three! Some of there events include the Bubble Run, (formally the Color Run), Red Apple School Supply Drive, Santa's Sleigh just to name a few! You can donate you time, resources, items, do food drives, etc. You can volunteer as an individual, or with an organization such as your employer, school, civic organization or church, etc.

The passion, commitment, dedication and grace of the staff is amazing! The staff and volunteers all serve with love, compassion and zeal! I must say that Katy Christian Ministries is truly about transforming lives through God’s grace and the generosity of the community. KCM truly lives by it's mission statement!

KCM services are offered to everyone in our community regardless of any religious background or affiliation. At KCM I see all people of all ages, all abilities and all stages of life working and volunteering. I started volunteering and serving to give back and left feeling more a part of my community than ever. I am always encouraged by the staff and even other volunteers to use my gifts and talents to bless the community. Being a volunteer has been life changing. I am blessed to volunteer for Tammi Biel the volunteer coordinator and everyone on the administrative staff under the direction of Deysi Crespo. Her team is so amazing!

The more volunteers and donations received, the more people in the community we can touch. Without our incredible team of staff and volunteers, KCM would not be able to serve so many families in the Katy/West Houston community. Volunteers made it possible to serve 726,706 lbs of food to 3,166 families in 2017! After Hurricane Harvey flooded our offices and store in 2017, Volunteers made it possible to continue serving families who had also flooded, providing them with food, dry clothes, cleaning supplies and more.

KCM is truly #VolunteerPowered! I can't stop, won't stop serving! It is so rewarding! Especially for an organization such as this! To learn more visit: https://ktcm.org TODAY
Or better yet, Apply TODAY to Volunteer by visiting https://ktcm.org/volunteer/. There is a simple and easy application to complete. Then just show up to attend a regularly scheduled volunteer orientation or Coffee Talk and you can get started! We hope to see you soon!

Katy Christian Ministries (KCM) has a community food fair on the last Saturday of every month, outside on the parking lot of a partner church. The goal is to provide free produce and other food items to anyone in need. It is amazing to watch all the volunteers in action, about 40-60 volunteers each tme. It's quite an operation. But, they do it with a lot of love! Through this initiative, KCM serves on average about 350 families in a 2-hour food distribution timeframe. The families benefiting from this program go home with a big smile. KCM is truly making a difference in the community. This is just one of the many initiatives they engage in, addressing food insecurity on a broader scale, with community support to make an impact together!

I am a former employee of KCM. It always made me feel awesome to be able to help clients with their particular need and to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Many of us are just a paycheck short of needing services and it is so comforting to know that KCM is ready and available to help.
