The MISSION of Intercultural Child & Family Services (ICCFS) is to improve the well-being of underserved and low-income children, parents, caregivers, and families of color while creating opportunities that promote equitable access to healthy and safe child development services and community-based parenting supports for families with children ages birth-five. ICCFS creates positive family connections that help to strengthen and build thriving relationships between children and their caregivers. Through their family-driven, participatory programming, ICCFS supports families with culturally and linguistically responsive programs that reduce social isolation, enhance knowledge and skills, and increase access to community support.
ICCFS’ services are offered in a culturally responsive, trauma-informed way and are delivered by organizational leaders and staff with shared experiences, cultures, and language to those that they serve. ICCFS’ ongoing reflection and evaluation ensures that programming makes a difference for families and communities of color; thereby encouraging poverty reduction and family empowerment.
