Services that Promote

Integrated Community Solutions, Inc.

Integrated Community Solutions, Inc. (ICS) is a values driven, non-profit corporation committed to providing human services that benefit the low to moderate income and disabled populations. We aim at achieving our mission by identifying client needs, providing assistance through a variety of programs, and connecting clients to other community resources to meet those needs. Together with various government agencies, ICS manages those programs to serve individuals and families throughout Brown County, Wisconsin. It is this privatization of government programs that allows for efficiency and cost effectiveness.

ICS will assist with rental payments, homeownership, and, above all, self-sufficiency for eligible applicants. Within these programs, ICS links clients to educational programs, job training, community service opportunities and other resources to pursue a better, empowered lifestyle.

Wendy Bushman was awarded a Legislative Citation sponsored by Senator Dave Hansen

Wendy Bushman is one of the rare people in this world, that does everything conceivable for others first.  Wendy has spent decades serving the communities in Brown County and continues to make a difference to this day, in the lives of so many.

Wendy understands that each person or family she serves is unique, both in family composition but also in life history. She takes the time to learn about each person to see the world through their eyes, and because of this approach she has built an immense amount of trust and respect from those she has helped to serve.

Wendy's tenderness, compassion, and kindheartedness make her special to Integrated Community Solutions and an asset beyond all others here in Brown County.

Wendy was hired July 13, 1977, ( this July will be here 38th year ). Wendy has held positions as a Client Services Technician, a Client Services Specialist, and most recently as a Housing Specialist.

Wendy has a Sociology degree from St Norbert College.

Wendy currently manages a caseload of Housing Choice Voucher Participants as well as serves as the facilitator on the Resident Advisory Board.  While Wendy is responsible for the case management of over 400 program participants, she does more than just process annual reviews for her clients, she takes the time to develop a rapport with her clients and personally invests in their success.  Wendy's role on the Resident Advisory Board allows her to actively engage with program participants on an alternate level, she empowers them to have a voice and express their opinions and ideas in regards to the administration of the program.

Beyond her standard ICS responsibilities, Wendy also finds time to volunteer on the Village of Allouez Beautification Committee, she champions the Pair and a Spare Campaign, and assists in leading the Homeless Hygiene Campaign.

The best way to exemplify Wendy is directly from those she has serve over the years. The following is direct feedback given by some of Wendy's clients.

Our Vision

ICS will be a leader in providing opportunities for self sufficiency in Wisconsin. We will internalize our values and live them every day. ICS will be a dynamic, progressive organization that embraces change and reaches for new opportunities constantly. We will develop an atmosphere that is honest, forthright and cares about each others success. We will celebrate debate and expect it to be practiced at all levels of the organization. All leaders will be progressive, self-reliant thinkers who take responsibility for the success of their areas and are not afraid to take risks in the pursuit of success. ICS will practice a "hard charging" style. Accountability is an integral part of our vision and we will enforce it with each other. The value of integration and partnerships will be clearly understood and a routine part of our culture.  ICS will hire and retain leaders who are visionary, creative, energetic role models for the organization. Our leadership team will all share a keen sense of urgency.

We will strive to achieve economic independence through organizational, individual, and community self sufficiency.
