IASC Featured in The Day

the day article thumbThe Day, Southeastern Connecticut’s regional newspaper, generously featured IASC on page 1 the day after our opening dedication ceremony.

       About 60 people, including church members, city officials, clergy and representatives from nonprofits and social service agencies, attended the event at IASC’s offices…
“We will have an immediate impact,” said [Attorney] Doyle, of the work that is planned. Then he added, “This would not be possible without the leadership and generosity of Church of the City.”
Martino said true success at the center will require a collaborative effort “because we’re dealing with the local aspect of a national issue that affects all of us.”
The IASC will operate under the umbrella of the Church of the City, as a nonprofit, with the church matching a client’s
$20 co-pay for an initial consultation, and if and when it’s decided that the center can be of help, setting a fee schedule
based on a sliding scale that takes into account a client’s income and the number of dependents at home, said Doyle.
