Community Resources

Utilizing the 211 Helpline (featured to the left) is the best tool to help residents build connections to the resources available within our community and throughout our state. However, many of our local resources also maintain their own online presence, which provides essential information about what services they offer within the community. Below are links to just some of the resources available in Lake County:

  • East Dakota Transit: A local transportation program organized to serve the needs of ECCO, Community Counseling, and ICAP, with ridership available to the general public, children going to school, and children going to day care providers at minimal cost.

  • Interlakes Community Action Partnership (ICAP): A community based non-profit organization which serves primarily low-income families and senior citizens. Administers a variety of programs!

  • Interlakes Area United Way: Coordinates financial and volunteer resources for non-profit agencies in Lake, Miner, and Moody counties.

  • Domestic Violence Network: Provides safety and services to adults and families who have experienced domestic violence/sexual assault so that they can make decisions about their lives in a supportive, non-judgmental, and empowering atmosphere.

  • Madison Job Service Office: Helps job seekers identify opportunities and prepare for productive employment.

  • SD Department of Social Services (Madison Office): Provides SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program), TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) and Medicaid programs for children and low income families.
