Mission Statement

Combined Community Services is a Christian Faith-based, not-for-profit human service agency that serves the low-income residents of Kosciusko County by removing barriers to self-sufficiency through community-supported programs.

Description

Combined Community Services was founded by the Greater Warsaw Ministerial Association to stop duplication of services provided to those in need in Kosciusko County. Through support of the local churches and the United Way of Kosciusko County, CCS became a central agency for Kosciusko County residents to come to when they were in need. Since our beginning in July 1984, Combined Community Services has become "the place for people in need" to come for assistance. From food, diapers, baby formula, or personal/hygiene products to financial assistance with housing, utilities, and transportation CCS meets an array of needs. CCS began to develop other programs to enable low-income households with the "tools" needed to become financially independence. With such programs as: · Emergency Assistance assists needy Kosciusko County residents with basic living needs to the extent that our resources permit. ·Project Independence, which works with low-income households to achieve educational goals, ·People Services, which assists people looking for employment ·Wheels to Work, which provides quality vehicles to low-income working families ·IMPACT, which assists people on "welfare" find and maintain employment ·Individual Development Accounts, which provides a "matching funds" savings program to low-income households for the purpose of education or home ownership ·Home Base offers homeownership counseling and down payment assistance to eligible households purchasing a home in Kosciusko County. CCS guides clients to obtain self-sufficiency. Combined Community Services' motto is "Helping Neighbors, Help Neighbors". The collaboration with local churches, businesses, charitable foundations, and individuals enable CCS to enable others to achieve self-sufficiency. By offering "a hand up, not a hand out", CCS offers programs that remove the barriers in families' lives that will enable them to achieve a higher quality of life. CCS looks for new ways to remove barriers for low-income residents of Kosciusko County.
