“From crisis to stability” is the theme, charge, and mission of ICS. There is a tremendous amount of need in our community, so it is imperative that we work to make a difference every day, one person and family at a time. We all hoped the end of the pandemic would bring a return to “normal.” Instead, we have been met with a new norm that includes consistently higher prices for food, rent, and gas, and higher interest rates that affect credit card balances and major purchases. Ultimately, many of our neighbors are suffering more than they did when the world was shut down. Many ICS clients work two jobs to make ends meet or live on a fixed income. The higher cost of living forces them to choose what they can pay for each month: rent or the car payment, groceries or medicine, the phone bill or childcare. They are impossible and overwhelming decisions. Wrap-around services from ICS meet more than a one-time need—they create a pathway that leads from crisis to stability to self-sufficiency. Progressing down the pathway removes those impossible decisions from a person’s life. And they don’t do it alone— volunteers and donors walk the journey alongside them. In the 2022-23 fiscal year, ICS expanded and enhanced its services to meet growing needs. We expanded access to nutritional food for many who never had it, helped more single mothers pursue higher education, and aided more job-seekers in securing employment or higher paying positions. We entered into partnerships to grow our ability to support families with children. Too many people in our community experienced hardship this year. Because of you, ICS is lifting more people and helping them move forward. It is our honor to receive your time and your gifts to serve our neighbors in need of a hand up.

SelfSufficiency Programs


participants in FY22


participants in FY23

Through Self-Sufficiency programs, ICS works with clients to build long-range solutions that take individuals and families from crisis to sustainability.

BRIDGES FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT A 10-week course in which participants work with mentors and financial experts to create their financial future story.

GETTING AHEAD A 16-week, 50 hour program to explore solutions for navigating out of poverty, and building resources for a brighter future story.

RESET A program to help navigate people from poverty to self-sufficiency with guidance, life skills, and support for 12-24 months. DONNA’S STORY_________________________________________________________________________ Donna joined RESET in March 2021. She had her Commercial Driver License (CDL) and had worked in the transportation industry for many years, but with the COVID 19 pandemic she lost most of her work and income. Donna had enrolled at Grand Canyon University to earn a Bachelor ‘s degree, a long-time dream since she finished high school three decades earlier. Because of the pandemic and her financial troubles, she thought she would have to quit school. The RESET program helped Donna maintain her housing and pay bills, provided accountability and emotional support, and helped her remain in college. She graduated with a Bachelor of Political Science degree in summer 2022 and completed the RESET program in December of the same year.


SINGLE MOM SCHOLARS A long-term support program providing financial assistance, practical services, and a peer community for scholars and their children as the women earn college degrees leading to better jobs and brighter futures. A SINGLE MOM SCHOLAR’S STORY_________________________________________________________ A letter from a scholar who graduated from the program in June 2023 and is now a Registered Nurse: “I was accepted into the Single Mom Scholars program in January 2021. At the time I had lost everything, I was a single mom living with my children’s grandparents, trying to work as much as I could and take care of my kids. My goal was to just get myself through the Associate’s of Nursing program at Pima

Single Mom Scholars Program Coordinator Colleen Trevino (center) with program participants

Community College so I could get us a place of our own. “Because of [the SMS] program and the support and reassurance it gives, I not only finished the associate’s program, but in my third semester I had the courage to enroll dually in the bachelor’s program at Northern Arizona University. I just purchased my first home, I bought a reliable vehicle, and I will walk as a graduate from NAU this Saturday.”


SelfSufficiency Programs





Expert staff and volunteers work one-on-one with clients through every step of the job search process.



FRANCINE’S STORY _____________________________________________________________________ Francine has a Master’s Degree in PsychologyEducation. But her prior work experience was in administrative assistant and customer service positions, so her resume didn’t reflect what she is capable of doing. She came to an ICS Workforce Development Center for help. After being hired in a Child Clinician position with benefits and a good salary, she sent this note to ICS:

“I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincerest gratitude to Evelyn Wright and her entire team of dedicated volunteers with ICS Workforce Development. I could not have landed my new employment opportunity... without their kind support and dedication to the philosophy of positivity and inclusivity.”

VITA TAX ASSISTANCE ICS hosts this United Way program providing free tax preparation for people with low to moderate incomes.

YOUTH ENRICHMENT SUPPORT Support for families enrolled in other ICS programs, allowing children to participate in afterschool sports or clubs, fine arts activities, tutoring, and more. Workforce Development staff and volunteer team members 4

Emergency Assistance


financial assistance distributed

EMERGENCY FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE ICS assists individuals and families in crisis with Emergency Financial Assistance (EFA) to meet acute basic needs. These include: • Rent and mortgage payments to prevent eviction • Utility payments to prevent loss of service • Help replacing a state-issued ID or birth certificate • Gas vouchers or minor car repairs to get to work • Back-to-work expenses; permits and uniforms These supports, along with short-term case management, help individuals and families get back on their feet and take steps toward stability and independence. RENE’S STORY __________________________________ Rene is a single father of two. When his nine-year-old daughter developed epilepsy, her new condition took a toll on more than just her health. Rene had to take unpaid time off from work to care for her and learn how to manage her new circumstances. While her welfare came first, the family fell behind on their bills. Rene came to ICS, where a case manager worked with him to get Emergency Financial Assistance to keep his family safe and stable in their home. “Interfaith has allowed me with their help to catch up, so I can continue to care and provide for my daughter,” he wrote in a note of gratitude to ICS staff. “Thank you ICS.”

RESET program participants volunteer in the Northwest Food Bank 5

Emergency Assistance EMERGENCY FOOD ICS distributes food to about 5,000 families or households each month—nearly 20,000 individuals. No one who comes to an ICS food bank walks away empty handed.

THE EMERGENCY FOOD ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (TEFAP) A federal program that helps supplement the diets of people with low incomes. THE COMMUNITY FOOD BANK OF SOUTHERN ARIZONA GROCERY RESCUE Every morning, ICS volunteers visit grocery stores and bakeries to pick up food that is donated because it is unlikely to sell before its expiration date. Instead of going into a landfill, this food is diverted to people in need.

2.3 million pounds of food distributed to



Many clients visit ICS food banks multiple times each month.

FOOD DRIVES AND INDIVIDUAL DONATIONS by faith communities, partner organizations, and other friends of ICS. ICS PURCHASE A portion of each year’s budget is allocated for bulk purchases of staple foods that have not been collected in sufficient quantities through grocery rescue or food drives. CODY’S FRIENDS This Tucson-area nonprofit donates dog and cat food so furry family members can be fed as well.

Mobile Food Bank Expands Route The Mobile Food Bank (MFB) hit the road at the beginning of 2022 to address a barrier limiting access to food assistance. With the help of faith community partners providing host locations and volunteer labor, the truck took food to people who lacked transportation to get to another food bank. Results were almost immediate. In the first four months, 80% of the clients who used the Mobile Food Bank had never been to a food bank before—evidence that the goal of reaching underserved clients was being met. By the end of the first year of operation the MFB made 6

weekly stops at four sites, with a monthly stop at a fifth site. The need for more was apparent.

NORTHWEST FOOD BANK Our brick-and-mortar food bank is open six days a week, with morning, evening, and weekend hours to accommodate various schedules. MOBILE FOOD BANK This custom-built refrigerated truck visits eight sites around Tucson to distribute food to clients living in food deserts or with no means to travel to a traditional food bank. It provides a full food bank experience.

MFB Stops

FREE PRODUCE GIVEAWAYS From November through May, ICS coordinates six Free Produce Giveaways each month at sites around Tucson. These events ensure that rescued produce and other food items get to those who can use them.




Eager to address hunger in more neighborhoods, ICS staff worked with community partners to add additional locations. In December


2022, the truck began making bi-weekly stops at YWCA House of Neighborly Service. Two more sites were added soon after.

BEULAH’S STORY _________________________________________________________________________ When Beulah, age 79, was diagnosed with cancer, her lack of transportation was a huge obstacle to her treatment and recovery. She faced dozens of hospital visits and she doesn’t own a vehicle. Physical limitations make it impossible for her to use public transportation to get to medical appointments. Beulah’s doctors determined she needed both radiation and chemotherapy treatments on top of her many other consultations and procedures. With her health deteriorating, ICS quickly organized a network of compassionate volunteer drivers who understood the urgency of her situation.

She never missed a single appointment, ensuring that her treatments were administered on time. The transportation volunteers provided more than rides. Beulah was fighting cancer alone, without a social support system. The volunteer drivers listened to her, encouraged her, and shared stories. Their friendship and emotional support became a crucial lifeline for Beulah, giving her strength and hope to keep fighting her cancer. ICS staff also made sure Beulah was fed during her chemo and radiation treatments, when it was difficult for her to cook. She began receiving Mobile Meals services and a volunteer shopper bought and delivered her groceries. Beulah is very grateful to have ICS assisting her and eagerly recommends the organization’s services to others. Her testimonial is blunt: “I would be dead if it wasn’t for Interfaith Community Services.”

Volunteers Since the beginning, volunteers have been the heart of ICS. Our programs and services would not be possible without the skills, dedication, and service of hundreds of incredible volunteers. Volunteers come from diverse backgrounds, traditions, and life experiences, all with a commitment to our community and a desire to share kindness and compassion with others. Currently at ICS there are 49 different job descriptions for volunteers. They take advantage of the vast experience and varied skills of the volunteer corps to meet the needs of tens of thousands of our neighbors in Southern Arizona. AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers are a large part of the volunteer efforts at ICS, meeting essential needs for older and disabled adults in transportation, food delivery, and ICS Help at Home.

ICS volunteers share how they feel about serving: “Driving the town to help people has been so much fun, discovering the nooks and crannies of our city.” John W., volunteer since 2015 “ICS continues to be a beacon of help in our community. I am proud and blessed to have been a part of it over these many years.” Susan L., volunteer since 1985 “Always heard this, but I have experienced it myself and now say the same thing: I get more out of volunteering than the people I give to.” Dick B., volunteer since 1997

49 different volunteer job descriptions 840 volunteers gave at least one hour 62,669 volunteer hours donated –

“I volunteer because it gets me out to meet people. I make new connections and friends while I help others.” Art A., volunteer since 2009

Faith Community Partners Working side by side we are able to do more than any one individual congregation can do. Interfaith Community Services was founded in 1985 by six faith communities who realized they could accomplish more good working together than separately.

$230,211 donated 77,872 pounds of food donated

>75% of ICS volunteers

come from faith community partner organizations

In fiscal year 2023 we were honored to work with 119 partnering faith communities. They play an essential role in ICS: donating funds and food, providing more than three-quarters of our volunteers, making their facilities and grounds available for ICS activities, adopting families during the holidays for Gifts of Love, and organizing special drives and service projects to meet specific needs.
