History of Integrated Family Community Services

Integrated Family Community Services (IFCS), formerly Inter-Faith Community Services, was founded in 1964 and incorporated in 1968. The brainchild of Maida Navis, IFCS came into being because she recognized that traditional human service resources were not serving the needs of many area residents. She coordinated the efforts of community members to develop IFCS to meet those needs.

IFCS Founder Maida Navis

IFCS is funded by donations from individuals, businesses, community organizations, congregations, special events, foundation grants, and federal, state, and local government support. In addition to actual funding, many donated services and equipment supplement the budget. Thousands of volunteer hours, food, clothing, and household items are donated by individuals, schools, congregations, and community organizations to insure that IFCS can continue to provide much needed services.

IFCS provides a “hand-up,” not a “hand-out” by giving motivation, incentive, and by providing services not available elsewhere in Arapahoe County. IFCS reaches out to families through basic services, moral support, and educational programs and provides an opportunity for people to help through volunteerism.

For more than 50 years, the Board of Directors, staff, and many volunteers have been devoted to building an organization which meets an unfilled need in the community. IFCS is always responsive and provides those in need with opportunities to learn, to grow, and to become or continue to be active and productive members of our community.
