Our History

We started in a small rural Arizona area, Lake Havasu City.  One person reaching out and helping another.  In 1983, our founder, Pat Creason envisioned a network for volunteer social services in the Lake Havasu City area. Pat’s idea turned into a social service organization that has helped thousands of people in rural Arizona since its inception.

Incorporating as an active 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization in 1986, Social Services Interagency Council of Lake Havasu City, Inc., otherwise known as Interagency Council or IAC , continues to grow through the effort of active community members, contributors and partners to meet the social service needs of Mohave and La Paz counties in Arizona.

With more than 30 different services provided by a caring staff and more than 200 volunteers, IAC programs offer a full range of services to all, from infants to the elderly, from individuals to families, through its one agency.

Helping People Help Themselves” is at the core of each of IAC’s programs. With a caring attitude, IAC gives people hope for their future and helps them learn to tackle life’s situations.
