Advocate for Human Services in Illinois

The Illinois state budget impasse is negatively affecting the lives of citizens across the state of Illinois. The human service sector is facing significant challenges without a state budget: As of October 2015, 84% of state-funded programs have cut the number of clients they serve, up from 34% in July 2015. This reduction is affecting children, people looking for jobs, those in treatment for mental illness, and so many more. Jobs are being lost: 20% of organizations have cut staffing. Many of United Way's funded partners have reached out to us for extra help during this uncertain time. At United Way we are doing as much as we can, and now we need your help too.

Contact your representatives today and let them know that we need to work across the aisle to pass a state budget that recognises the importance of social services in the State of Illinois.
