DSCC Staffing Interruption Update for Families

September 16th, 2020

DSCC team members remain here to support our families during the strike.

The University of Illinois at Chicago’s Division of Specialized Care for Children (DSCC) is experiencing staff interruptions in some of our regional offices.

Our team members across the state are stepping in as needed to make sure our care coordination continues for the children and families we serve.

 The SEIU Local 73, which represents a portion of DSCC’s professional, technical and clerical staff, began a strike on Monday, Sept. 14, at 6 a.m.

DSCC continues to remain open and committed to serving our participants and their families during the strike.

If you have an urgent need and are unable to contact your Care Coordinator directly, please call your local DSCC regional office. You may also call our main telephone number at (800) 322-3722 or email We have staff members ready to assist.

Thank you for your understanding and partnership.
