Inter-Faith Community Services
Inter-Faith Community Services provides basic human services and enrichment programs to low-income people using community resources. Inter-Faith 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 in the south metropolitan area of Denver, Colorado.
Inter-Faith 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 Inter-Faith’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.
Inter-Faith 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.
