What is InterServ?

Interfaith Community Services, Inc. is a group of volunteers, churches and community organizations that work together in St Joseph, Missouri for change. Since 1909, volunteers and staff at InterServ have worked in the community to identify unmet needs; define problems and issues; and create viable solutions, all the while lessening the impact of poverty on people in our community. We've been in the "helping" field for over 100 years and serve the Northwest Missouri area, specifically the Buchanan, Andrew, Clinton and DeKalb counties.

Your Legacy - Our History


What We Do

In A Day

InterServ provides programs and services designed to lessen the impact of poverty on our community. St. Joseph's first Childcare Center for working parents was, and still is, located at Wesley Center. Our Elderly Nutrition and Homemaker programs were some of the first established in the state and our Mobile Meals program is the largest in the area, serving over 74,000 meals to homebound seniors yearly. InterServ's Youth Program has produced two Olympic weightlifters and an Olympic weightlifting coach.
