Our Mission


Protect and support our state’s most important resource—the residents of Illinois—by creating a stronger and more stable human services sector.

Our Vision

Illinoisans have access to quality of life supported by a human services sector that is collaborative, efficient, effective and sustainable.

How do we achieve this?

  • By leading statewide efforts to fully fund human services
  • By increasing awareness of the value human services deliver to society: from early childhood/child care and after school programs; care for older adults; homeless and housing support; and job training and workforce development
  • Through the guidance of a diverse and insightful Board of Directors
  • With the expertise and dedication of our team, coalition partners, business/civic leaders, and key stakeholders
  • Through innovative research
