Over 30 Years of Service to
the Southern Tier Nonprofit Sector
At IHS, we believe that nonprofit and human service organizations are the foundation upon which a community is held. Nonprofits provide vital programs and services that lift entire populations and operate as a driving force for innovation, economic growth, and job creation. Providing hope and opportunity, nonprofits work with individuals at all levels of society with the goal of creating a better, more prosperous world, for all.
IHS works with nonprofits, for-profit businesses, funders, government entities, and community leaders to create a network of collaboration and communication aimed at improving the quality of life in the Southern Tier. We believe that success is achievable when organizations can break out of their silos and are given the right tools to meet a common goal. Our focus is on the good of the community. We are a dynamic and responsive entity, able to provide the information and resources that are most needed in the community, both for organizations and individuals.
IHS operates programs and services such as the 2-1-1 HELPLINE, Steuben Rural Health Network, Coordinated Transportation Services, Mobility Management, Resource Development, Member Services, and Lead Agency Services. We specialize in capacity building and information & referral.
