Resource Centers

Connecting the dots to success…

ICS Resource Centers support clients to develop the skills and confidence needed to secure a job and stay employed. From job readiness to soft skill development and budget planning, the Resource Centers are changing lives.

Expert volunteers are on hand to help identify opportunities and navigate the employment application process. In addition to general support and coaching, the Resource Centers also provide resume and cover letter writing and review assistance, online job search, and application submissions.

Job searches can be done through self-initiated searches at our computer stations. ICS volunteers will also sit with clients to provide personalized coaching. It is a relaxed atmosphere where individuals can take their time and work at their own pace.

After helping clients assess their skills and career goals, ICS volunteers will work one-on-one to set employment goals and objectives.

Getting Ahead Workshops

ICS/Wells Fargo Money Management Workshops

Managing your money. Budgeting and savings strategies.

Learn specific steps you can take to help you develop a financial plan. Discover tools and tips you can use for money management. Set financial goals and make a commitment to implement workshop strategies.

Getting Ahead Workshops

Interfaith Community Services hosts Getting Ahead Workshops.  This program, funded by the Pima County “Ending Poverty Now” initiative, helps ensure people are not just getting by, but are instead “getting ahead” with an intensive 16-week course designed for people in or near poverty.

The free workshops offer a supportive environment to explore solutions and build resources to help participants become more financially stable. Participants examine their own experience of poverty as well as explore issues in the community that impact poverty − banking, housing, jobs, transportation − providing critical information the community can use to take action to end poverty.

To learn more about participating in the Getting Ahead workshop contact
