CIIC and its programs were established after a series of community meetings held in the fall of 2004, in English and Spanish, to address our community's needs in response to changing demographics. These meetings gathered over 75 immigrants, government officials, health care providers, non-profit organization directors, and other community members to establish a prioritized list of community needs.
After eight years of providing service, Oct 2012 Integrated Community announced our separation from an umbrella organization becoming a stand-alone Non Profit Organization under the guidelines of the IRS as a 501C3 agency. We have spread our wings and increased our services in order to have our doors open full time for our clients, both those receiving services AND to those providing services. We are the only program in the Yampa Valley that provides assistance to limited/non-English speaking community members in the areas of medical, employment, housing, legal and other basic needs, decreasing the workload of other human service agencies in the area.
Partnering with Routt County United Way to form the 443 Oak NonProfit Center, we took possession of a permanent home for our 2 non profit organizations in thanks to anonymous donors. In the near future we hope to expand the building in order to make room for the work of other non profits in the area who need office/conference space to do their good work.
