IFCA is a collaborative effort of Clear Lake Churches. A primary purpose is to provide emergency assistance to travelers in need of gas, a meal, or perhaps overnight lodging or a bus ticket. Vouchers are distributed by the Clear Lake Police Department.
IFCA also organizes events such as the Annual Community Christmas & Thanksgiving Dinners, High School Baccalaureate, and the summer ice cream social. Fee hot chocolate is provided at Christmas by the Lake. IFCA also provides assistance and support to local school and charitable organizations.
