Who We Are
Illinois Partners for Human Service is a state-wide organization of over 800 partners who are located in every legislative district in Illinois. The Chicago Alliance for Collaborative Effort (CACE) formed Illinois Partners for Human Service in 2008. As an umbrella federation of more than twenty service organizations in Chicago, CACE has a long standing history of creating initiatives to support the human service and health sectors.
What We Do
Illinois Partners for Human Service ensures human service providers have a seat at the table when decisions are made that impact their future. We inform nonprofit, state government, faith-based, business, and education leaders who agree that our communities are healthier and safer when residents have access to bedrock public services such as early childhood learning, after-school programs, family support, assistance to the disabled, workforce training, violence prevention, and home care for the elderly.
As we work to increase efficient and effective investments in the human services sector so that our communities reap the greatest economic return, Illinois Partners focuses on garnering support for:
- Quality services,
- Adequate Funding, and
- Measurable results.
If we want a well-maintained and managed human services sector, we need to support our civic leaders through education, collaboration, and advocacy so that Illinois’ most at risk residents and communities are taken care of.
