Since 1998, Christel House International has been helping children around the world break the cycle of poverty.
In its early years, the Christel House founders looked for guidance on whether the organization would function better and accomplish more as a public organization or private foundation. Ice Miller helped navigate these waters and Christel House became a public organization. Since then, Ice Miller has assisted with corporate governance and helped maintain compliance with all laws and regulations concerning 501(c)3s.
Christel House looks to Ice Miller for help with more than just compliance issues. Christel House shares offices, staff and other resources with a private foundation which operates separately from Christel House. Ice Miller helped Christel House track and allocate staff and other resources appropriately, while maintaining work loads and accountability to staff, donors and the children Christel House serves.
