Innovative Concepts

for Families of Lincoln County

dedicates its mission, strategies and efforts to the following:

 

1.  To promote low-income residents with opportunities that prevent drug and substance abuse, domestic violence, and other harmful activities.

 

2.  To educate youth and families in areas of nutrition, academics, life-skills, and other related areas that are vital to successful youth and family stability emotionally, economically, and professionally.

 

3.  To seek community support, partnerships and collaborations that further the goals and outcomes of each project through leveraging resources, grant writing, and fundraising.

 

4.  To stablize families using research-based strategies and best practices, whether using a single program or a combined protocol that offers families a safe place to live, a creative and academically supported environment for learning and an opportunity to grow through home ownership, model tenancy, or professional development.
