We Are ICS!

Immigrant Community Services Inc, (ICS) is a service focused community-based organization  primarily serving the African immigrant communities in the Washington DC Metro area. We also provide service to all immigrants in the area.

Based in Montgomery County Maryland, ICS was established in 2012 in response to the exponential growth of African immigrants in the County and the need for multicultural support for  the new residents. Our clients include newly arrived refugees, migrants and people moving from within the US to settle in the DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia metro area. Our  services are for  families, unaccompanied minors, individuals,  LGBTQIA+ and Seniors.

Through a broad range of culturally specific programs, ICS helps immigrants better integrate and thrive.



The ICS Way

The ICS way is to support the community by offering services as well as collaborating with other community based organizations, government partners and other entities to serve the community and to build capacity. We truly believe that “it takes a village” and in that “if you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together”

Build Equitable Partnerships

  • ICS will work in partnership with other community service providers to strengthen its service delivery to diverse communities.
  • Develop equitable partnerships based on research and innovation to support effective service delivery for the community.
  • Align our programs and services to meet the needs of the community.
