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
