About Integrated Family Community Services

Integrated Family Community Services (IFCS) is a local non-profit organization providing basic human services and companion programs to people of low-income by bringing together community members and resources.  IFCS’ history of providing for our neighbors in need positioned it as an essential service provider in the response to the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19). 

We seek entry-level bilingual candidates ready to jump in to assist the organization as it continues to innovate to alleviate the effects of the economic fallout on low-income households accompanying the pandemic.

IFCS programs include a Food Market, Bill Payment Assistance, access to no-cost Wellness Programming and Holiday Enrichment Programs.
