Defend Social Services

With you, we transform lives.

Help us protect social services in Illinois and encourage investment in education, housing, older adult care, and family services. 

Casa Central reaches nearly 20,000 individuals a year, children, adults, seniors, and families. Our community needs us, and we need you.

Call Governor Rauner and your lawmakers ( 1-844-311-CUTS or 2887) and urge them to provide support for family and human services. Together, let's demand appropriations for services already provided and a fully-funded FY2017 budget.
