Interfaith Community Services

Interfaith Community Services, Inc.: Improving Child Nutrition, Safety and Literacy Interfaith

Community Services works with faith and community partners to meet the needs of struggling families. We were founded 42 years ago by six downtown Columbia churches to be

Columbia’s first urban service center. Interfaith has been an Advanced Special Ministry for four decades. Our offices are located in St. Mark UMC in the Earlwood neighborhood of Columbia. We are partnering with St. Mark to work toward improving the lives of Section 8 residents in a nearby complex called Riverside Apartments. Our Mission is to convene, educate and coordinate faith and other community partners to build strong families and strong communities. Our Vision is a united faith community improving the quality of life in South Carolina by working together to build strong families and healthy thriving children. Our Guiding Principles: The faith traditions at the heart of Interfaith Community Services call us to love our neighbors as ourselves. This calls us to share the gifts and resources of this life justly, to work in partnership for the common good, and to provide an environment that promotes the development of everyone’s strengths and skills. We practice honest and integrity in everything we do. We provide service in the spirit of unity and sincerity. These principles guide our work and inspire our mission.
