Interfaith Community Services is at the forefront of providing basic needs services, but we are just as committed to helping those in crisis build self-sufficiency. Along the continuum of our self-sufficiency programs, Single Mom Scholars (SMS) focuses on improving the economic wellbeing of single moms and their children.
