Incorporated in 1986, Inner County Outreach is one of the oldest Harford County Non-Profit organizations. ICO seeks to nurture and develop families and youth. ICO assists them in moving from “instability to stability” and “risk to resiliency.” Our organization provides assistance to our clients in the following areas: 

  • Basic Needs- addressing food and shelter deficiencies
  • Youth Services- filling the gaps in education, mentoring, child care, and residential services and 
  • Health and Wellness-issues surrounding health education and awareness.

Focusing on these categories of assistance, ICO is able to provide positive outcomes for “at-risk” families and children who find themselves caught in the cycle of poverty.


ICO is a faith-based organization that nurtures families by assessing and addressing individual's educational, social, and health needs. ICO provides stepping stones to those struggling to improve their quality of life.

Core Values:

  • We assist every person and family with respect and dignity.
  • We adhere to the principle that every child has value and worth.
