We all need a little help sometimes.

Welcome to Integrated Family Community Services. We are here to help you during these difficult and unsettling times.


Visit IFCS to Receive No-Cost Groceries

The Market at IFCS is a free grocery store allowing people earning low-incomes or no incomes to shop for their basic needs once every 31 days. Fresh produce, frozen meat, and dairy products are stocked weekly along with pantry staples such as pasta and rice. Additionally, when available, we can offer infant care items and household toiletries to shoppers.   

Open Monday through Friday, visitors of the market must check-in prior to shopping the market. Visitors that arrive after check-in will not be able to shop the market. Late arrivals will be given a one-day emergency food allotment or asked to return for service at the next scheduled check-in.

Morning Check-in:

  • Monday, Tuesday*, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
  • 8:30 am – 11:00 am.

Afternoon Check-in:

  • Monday Tuesday, Thursday and Friday
  • 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm.

*The Market will close to large deliveries on the first and third Tuesday of the month at 10:30 am and reopen at 1:00 pm.

We ask that you come prepared with shopping bags. IFCS is unable to provide bags but may have boxes for shoppers to use to transport food home. 

Eligibility: Pantry and TEFAP food is available for income-eligible households and to households that participate in select public assistance programs. Eligibility determined through self-disclosure. No photo ID or proof of income required.

Request Rental Assistance

IFCS closed the application for rental assistance Wednesday, April 5 at 3:15pm. Requests for assistance are in excess of the total amount of assistance the organization has to help with temporary financial hardships. We can no longer accept requests for application.

All interest forms received prior to the program’s closure will continue to be processed for application eligibility. Our Program Team is reviewing and processing applications already on file until all remaining funds are allocated. You will be contacted within 2 business days if eligible to apply for assistance. Those living outside the service area may receive a denial notice one week following their submission of an interest form.

We greatly appreciate the community’s interest in our program. The application process will reopen if additional funds are made available.

Those in need of financial assistance are encouraged to contact the 2-1-1 Mile High United Way Help Desk to connect with other nonprofits and government agencies in your area.

Households that have received a summons from the Arapahoe County Court showing a date for an eviction hearing may be eligible to apply for emergency assistance. To apply, please visit the Arapahoe County website.

Request Utility Bill Payment Assistance

IFCS provides, through our partnership with Energy Outreach Colorado, bill payment assistance to eligible households that are behind on their energy bills; specifically electricity and gas. Water and other public service bills are not eligible for the program.

Program service area includes select cities in western Arapahoe County, southwest Denver, and northern Douglas County. Those seeking assistance are encouraged to review the application criteria provided on the interest form.

Request No-Cost Recreation Center Passes

IFCS Recreation Center Passes are available to qualified low-income members of the Englewood Recreation Center and South Suburban Parks and Recreation District. The IFCS issued pass allows individuals in the centers’ service areas to utilize eligible programs and services at no-cost.
