social servicesThe Illinois Senate passed a bipartisan measure Thursday to free up funding for social service agencies throughout Illinois. State Senator Bill Haine (D-Benton) released the following statement:

"This vote today is for the many social service providers throughout Illinois. This measure would provide funding for the Community Care Program, which helps organizations in my district, such as Senior Services Plus in Alton, keep their meals on wheels program going and help seniors stay in their homes. Places like St. John’s Community Care in Collinsville, who help people with Alzheimer’s, may now have a fighting chance to keep their doors open as well. We cannot abandon our seniors or those who depend on social services.”

“Nonetheless, while I am glad we were able to come to a bipartisan agreement to free up funding for these organizations, there is still so much work to do. This is a step in the right direction, but the thing is, we still need a full budget, and I plan to continue to work hard in Springfield to get this done.”
