Mission Statement
The mission of Clark County Community Services is to provide a central location where people can receive assistance in time of crises with their basic needs of food, clothing, housing, and utilities.
Background Statement
Clark County Community Services was organized in 1975 through the efforts of the Association of Churches and Fiscal Court.  People who needed food, clothing, utilities, and clothing are now directed to this one central office.  In the beginning, the Fiscal Court made available benevolent funds that had been distributed by the magistrates, provided an office in the Court House, and helped secure federal funds for a worker. Several local churches contributed additional money, some volunteer help, and a great deal of clothing to get Community Services started.  A governing committee was set up that included representatives from the Association of Churches and the Fiscal Court.  The current location at 30 Taylor Avenue is the seventh location since the agency's beginning.  
     At present, Community Services is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization governed by a board of directors made up of minister representative from the Association of Churches and persons from the community at large.    The agency has stood the test of time, and continues to be true to its mission of giving needed assistance in the form of food, clothing, utilities and  rent.  The agency operates on money received from the United Way of the Bluegrass, private donations, local churches, grants, and thrift store receipts.  The agency no longer receives monies from Fiscal Court, nor is it a state or government agency.  Our mission and focus have been the same since the very beginning of its inception in 1975.  It is a ministry that continues to have a heart for hurting humanity.
Impact Statement
We currently have an Emergency Shelter Grant of $117,000 for homeless prevention and Rapid rehousing, a two year grant of $170,000 for Tenant Based Rental Assistance, and a Continuum of Care Grant of $242,000.  We have a food pantry and commodity program that average feeding 1,300 families each month.  Our primary goal is to promote responsive families toward self-sufficiency.  Our secondary goal is to give senior citizens food security.  We operate a thrift store which doubles as our clothing bank, our clients can shop for free 4 times a year. Our name for the thrift store is C.C.'s Closet.
Needs Statement
The need for our food pantry is increasing, therefore, we need to find more creative ways to raise funds to feed the hungry.  We need a minimum of $3500 a month, as well as $500 a month for personal care needs such as toilet tissue, toothpaste, and shampoo.  This is an ongoing expense that is not donated or subsidized in any way.
It takes 30,000 pounds of food to feed our families each month. Donations of non-perishable foods average 2,000 each month. Funds are needed to help fill the pantry to meet the need of our clients.
CEO/Executive Director Statement
This organization is unique in that it has the flexibility to introduce programs that fit the needs of the community we serve.  Without this agency in place, many available federal programs would not have a conduit to provide services to local families in need.  We have administered EFSP funds, government food commodity programs, and federal housing dollars because we are a local agency willing to take the responsibility for these programs.  As an agency, we absorb the majority of the overhead in administering these programs.  There is very little administrative funds attached to these programs, yet the programs are desperately needed for the families we serve.

There is very limited rent assistance that does not have strings attached. Our better housing programs have several qualifying factors, and lead to self-sufficiency. A client must be in good standing with Clark County Communtiy Services to be considered for one of the housing programs. Each grant has its own particular requirements.



Our food pantry is operated in full cooperation with God's Pantry guidelines. We administer two commodity programs, both based on income below the 130 percent poverty rate. The Commodity Supplemental Food Program only serves seniors over 60 years of age and is in addition to The Emergency Food Assistance Program which serves all ages.


This program stands in the gap only when all other means have been exhausted through other programs offered such as the Li-Heap. Generally other programs offered through Community Action are for heating assistance only. Therefore, this agency gives priority to water bills, since no one else assists with that in our community.
