Prospective Board Member Information

Our Mission

Combined Community Services (CCS) provides comfort, hope, and resources for neighbors in need. Offering a hand up, not a handout, 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.”
