*President & CEO’s Call to Action

Please help us by contacting our state legislators…….


Dear TCRC Supporters;

I’m reaching out to you to ask for your help in moving the “budget standstill” forward in the state of Illinois. Currently, TCRC operates on a $7.8 M budget and the impact of no state budget will eventually be detrimental to the individuals that TCRC serves. No state budget means a lack of cash flow to human service agencies, no expedited payments, and cuts to programs and services.

If any supporters have relationships with Illinois Legislators, please contact them on behalf of individuals with disabilities and help us to resolve this crisis!

As always, thank you for your continued support to TCRC and the individuals that we serve.



Jamie Durdel

President & CEO
