About CCS

  Welcome to Combined Community Services
 

Our Mission:

Combining Community Services to Provide Comfort, Hope and Resources for Neighbors in Need.

Our motto is "Helping Neighbors, Help Neighbors.". CCS looks for new ways to remove barriers for low-income or in-crisis residents of Kosciusko County. By offering "a hand up, not a hand out," CCS offers programs that remove the barriers in families' lives and equip them to achieve a higher quality of life. We have been serving the community within our community for over 31 years through your generous support.

 

Combined Community Services is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides many programs and services for Kosciusko County. Our largest program is our Emergency Assistance program, which offers long term solutions as well as immediate financial help. It's our goal to meet the spiritual needs of the people we meet with and to offer more than just a quick solution to the immediate problem. Our appointment system allows us time to discuss topics that led to the immediate crisis, from employment issues, budgeting, support systems, to referrals for assistance with education, childcare, and medical needs.

History and Philosophy

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 been the clearinghouse for people to come to for assistance. From food, clothing, diapers, baby formula, or personal/hygiene products to financial assistance with utilities, CCS meets a variety of needs for families in immediate crisis. Over the years, we have added self sufficiency programs to provide low-income households with the tools needed to become financially independent.
