Our Mission



Taking action for cleaner, safer service offices

The Alliance for Community Services brings together people that depend on human services, front-line public service workers -- the real experts on how our Human Services system works -- to "put the HUMAN into services".  

Together, we call for:

*  health care and human services for all

*  person-centered, fully staffed and accountable human service offices

* progressive revenue to fully fund a social safety net Illinois can be proud of.
