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 @ IFCS is a free grocery store allowing people earning low-incomes or no incomes to shop for their basic needs twice a month. 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.
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.
To decrease wait time for first time visitors, we offer online pre-registration. Before visiting The Market @ IFCS, use the links below and, after completing the online form, screenshot or write down your Client ID so we can find your information quickly. (Paper registration is available at check in for those who need it.)
Visitors may check-in to shop The Market @ IFCS during IFCS’ regular Service Hours.
Please note: The Market may receive deliveries throughout the month that result in a temporary closure. We appreciate your understanding and patience.

Register for IFCS Seasonal Enrichment Programs
IFCS hosts special events each year to help families and children with needs such as school supply support, seasonal holiday meals and gift assistance. Learn about the current enrichment program at our Happenings pages.
Households seeking assistance with past-due accounts, demands for payment, eviction notices, or require assistance for more than one month are not eligible for the one-time payment program. We encourage you to contact the 2-1-1 Mile High United Way Help Desk to connect with other nonprofits and government agencies in your area.
IFCS opened a one-time rental payment lottery on October 2, 2023. This was a limited program providing payment to assist with November 2023 rent to those meeting very specific eligibility criteria. Rental assistance was provided to an estimated 15 households, randomly selected from eligible applicants.
