Infant Crisis Services
Infant Crisis Services was founded in 1984 to provide life sustaining formula, food and diapers to babies and toddlers in times of crisis. The non-profit organization also offers education, emotional support and guidance to the families seeking its services, serving as a link to connect families with other helping agencies and programs leading to self-sufficiency. ICS began as a Sunday school project and was housed for its first 10 years in the back of the 2nd Presbyterian Church. In April 1995, the organization relocated to a free-standing building, but it quickly outgrew that space. In order to better serve the needs of babies and toddlers across the community, ICS received a gift from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation and negotiated the project of a new facility with Smith & Pickel.
The new 17,000 square foot facility, completed in 2009, houses administrative offices, warehouse and client services operations. Above all, the new facility has allowed Infant Crisis Services to serve many more babies and toddler, as well as launch a new mobile unit. In 2008, Infant Crisis Services served more than 10,000 needy babies and toddlers – as of March 2014, that number has grown to 15,000.
