Who we help.

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

(DSCC Care Coordinators and staff) were a shoulder to lean on. They showed that they genuinely cared about my well-being as I was growing up and through school. They really showed a lot of love and support for all of the hard things that we were going through.
— Former participant Zayd Jawad
