Ways To Give
There are many ways you can donate to Innovative Community Support Services. Every gift makes a difference in the lives of individuals with developmental disabilities.
Innovative Community Support Services is committed to helping people participate fully in their community through a place to live, opportunities to go to work, participating in meaningful activities, and belonging to a network of people who care. Whether it’s helping individuals be able to take a trip, buying adaptive equipment or providing care for farm animals at Sow and Grow Farm, every penny is used to better the lives of people with a developmental disability.
Through your generous support, we are working towards a future where every person with a developmental disability has the same opportunities as you and I to realize their goals and dreams.

Gifts in Kind
Many of the individuals and families we support live with limited means. While needs vary given the time of year, new gift cards to purchase things like movie passes, groceries, coffee, or household goods are accepted year-round, especially during the holiday season when staff and volunteers put together hampers for individuals and families in need.
We do accept gently used clothing and household goods however have limited storage.
