Illinois Human Service Providers Have a New Communication Strategy

Human service agencies across Illinois are taking a new approach to get their message across to lawmakers and the public.

“The general public has values in education, security, opportunity, health. But, often times they don’t understand what human services are, what we do and why we’re an integral part, an important part, to all of those values that they have.”

Crabb says the human service sector will also work on reframing language with lawmakers so they can better present its importance in budget discussions.
