About Us

Building a Great Future

For those in need


Providing Stability

Combined Community Services is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit that provides many programs and services for Kosciusko County. We are an equal-opportunity provider. CCS works with people to stabilize their situation through our Emergency Assistance and continues the path toward independence through case management assistance in setting and meeting sustainable long-term goals through our economic Self-Sufficiency programs.

Our Mission

Combined Community Services (CCS) provides comfort, hope and resources for neighbors in need. Offering ‘a hand up, not a hand out’, CCS removes barriers for low-income or in-crisis residents of Kosciusko County by offering programs that educate and support clients and equip them to achieve a higher quality of life.

Our Vision

We desire to be ones who are “helping neighbors help neighbors” by bringing the communities’ resources to a single location to assist families in immediate crisis and through long-term case management by giving a “hand up, not a hand out.”

Our Story

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 the support of the community and local churches, 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.

Due to the increasing need, we have added self-sufficiency programs to provide low-income households with the tools needed to become financially independent.

CCS partners with people like you to make a big impact! Join the mission now by donating time, food, clothing, and finances.

Our Programs

Our programs offer vital resources for neighbors in need in Kosciusko County. Annually, CCS is serving 8,000+ households throughout our programs. We utilize measured outcomes from all programs to continually assess and improve our services. Rooted in data and Guest stories, we grow our impact internally and externally

Emergency Assistance

Unfortunately, no matter how much we plan and prepare, emergencies will always catch us by surprise. That’s where we hope to step in. 

Self-Sufficiency Programs

We come alongside our Guests to offer the resources, education, training, information, and support they need for future success. 

Seasonal Events

Throughout the year we provide resources and ask for our community’s partnership through events in order to serve our neighbors with their timely needs.
