Kids Oneida Announces the Evolution to ICAN

Kids Oneida is thrilled to announce the relaunch of their brand as Integrated Community Alternatives Network (ICAN).

Founded in 1997 as a home-based mental health services program for children in Oneida County, aptly named Kids Oneida, the organization was built around the core vision of keeping families together. Since that time, Kids Oneida has grown into a 16-program entity reaching communities across six counties in Central New York and serving individuals from prenatal to end-of-life care.

“While the organization’s vision and mission of empowering individuals and families remains the same, the depth and breadth of services we offer and the individuals we’re able to help has evolved exponentially. The name Kids Oneida no longer speaks to the whole of our organization,” said Executive Director and CEO Steven Bulger. “ICAN is intended to encompass our previous growth and position us for further expansion if that’s what the future holds.”

From fewer than ten employees and service providers to a team now more than 350 strong, ICAN has seven satellite sites and offers school, community, and at-home programming in 6+ counties, all aimed at empowering personal wellness and restoration with the ultimate goal of keeping (more) families together.

Kids Oneida, now Integrated Community Alternatives Network (ICAN), is a non-profit organization that serves as a unique home and community-based network that provides individualized and non-traditional services and care to the highest risk youth, families and adults, with social, emotional, mental health, and behavioral challenges.
