Who we help.

We serve thousands of families in all counties across the State of Illinois.

The reassurance you gave me that (my Care Coordinator) was here and he understood and if I needed anything, I could just call or come to the office and it was OK. There was nothing we couldn’t handle.
— Trooper's mom, Brandy Santiago
