ICS fulfills its mission in Brown County, Wisconsin by serving over 3200 households with rental assistance each year. Among these households, approximately 65% are elderly or disabled.

The assistance offered through ICS' programs serves the purpose of making life affordable when wages cannot. The gap between miniumum wage households and Fair Market Rent is achieved when ICS and other local organizations provide services to neighboring families.

A unique aspect of ICS, however, is the drive to encourage self-sufficiency among participating families. Beginning in 2005, ICS was awarded two Family Self-Sufficiency Coordinator grants to grow this program. Just a year earlier, the Homeownership program received national recognition for having the most home purchases in Wisconsin. These two programs work in tandem to allow families to make their goals, and self-sufficiency, a reality.

With a dedicated staff and an involved Board of Directors, ICS is proud to bring its mission statement to fruition in Brown County. To volunteer or make a donation with one of our programs, call 498-3737.
