Iron County Care and Share

Providing an Exit from Crisis

Cedar City, UT


Iron County Care and Share (ICCS) was founded in 1984 by a group of local churches who felt a commitment to the community members experiencing the results of poverty. Begining with a small food pantry, need soon propted the distribution of federal commodities. In 1994, the pantry expanded into the remote areas of Iron County by opening two satilite locations in Beryl Junction and Parowan. Iron County's growing homless population resulted in the addition of a homeless shelter, and in 1995 a Transitional Housing Program and in 2000 a Homeless Outreach Program tha includes the entire 5 county region of SW Utah.

What we aim to solve

The Organization recognizes contributions, donations, and other similar items including unconditional promises to give as revenue in the period received. Most of the Organizations revenues are received from in-kind donations and grants from federal, state, and local sources. Grants are typically received on a reimbursement basis. Accordingly, grant revenues are recognized when qualifying expenses have been incurred and all other grant requirements have been met. Revenues, expenses, gains, and losses are classified based on the existence or absence of any donor-imposed restrictions. The Organization seeks to diversify income to provide stronger cash flow and decrease grant dependency.
