After an extensive application process, Interfaith Community Services earned its Service Enterprise (SE) Certification! ICS is now one of just nine certified nonprofits in Southern Arizona.

This new designation signifies the commitment by ICS to leveraging the time and talent of volunteers to meet our social mission. The Points of Light/AL!VE Service Enterprise Program strengthens nonprofit capacity through the fundamental and strategic use of volunteers and their skills to address community needs.

Service Enterprises are among the top 11% of nonprofits in the country in volunteer engagement and organizational performance. Research conducted by TCC Group and Deloitte shows that nonprofits operating as a Service Enterprise are significantly more adaptable, sustainable, and scalable than peer organizations. They operate effectively on about half the median budget.
