Who We Are

We’re the Illinois Coalition for Community Services (ICCS)

ICCS is a private non-profit organization that exists to preserve the dignity and well-being of all Illinois residents.

We do what it takes to break the cycle of poverty in underserved and low-income communities across the state. ICCS got its start in 1985, and has since helped more than 1,000 Illinois communities in 90 counties shift to positive momentum and change.

We’re ready to work with your community and discover what we can do together.

Our Mission

We care deeply about improving lives across Illinois. 

Our mission is to empower youth, families and communities through education, advocacy and grassroots organizing.


Helping communities help themselves.
