Integrated Family Community Services
Ascension & Integrated Family Community Services;
neighbors helping neighbors…
With a proud tradition of giving a hand up, not a hand out, Inter-Faith Community Services is a hopeful place to those in need.
Integrated Family Community Services provides basic human services and enrichment programs to low-income people using community resources. IFCS fosters self-sufficiency and respects the dignity of each client. Inter-Faith serves the people of Centennial, Englewood, Glendale, Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Lone Tree, Sheridan and unincorporated Arapahoe County.
IFCS is probably best-known for its food and clothing banks, which are truly a reflection of our community. Community members – schools, churches, service clubs, businesses and families, donate all the food and clothing.
One of IFCS’s main goals is homeless prevention. Through a variety of resources including financial assistance (rental, utility, mortgage assistance), transitional and off-site housing IFCS is able to help families achieve their housing goals, access more affordable housing or simply help its families maintain their present shelter.
IFCS also has many other programs to help the community-programs for homebound seniors: medical transportation, lunch bunch and grocery shopping help; financial assistance: medical prescriptions, gas vouchers, bus tokens and birth certificates; gift of hearing and sight programs; victim assistance; youth programs including Ready, Set, School!: a program where low-income children are sponsored by groups or individuals and the children receive a brand new outfit (shoes, underwear, clothes, socks, etc.), a new backpack and school supplies to start their school year off on the best foot possible; and Thanksgiving and Holiday Baskets for families and seniors that would not be able to celebrate these holidays without the community’s help.
