Sts. Joachim & Ann Care Service was founded in 1981 by five volunteers, with $500 in-hand and a profound spirit of charity. Â Little did those five realize how far their dedication to assisting those in need would go, or how many thousands of people would be empowered, encouraged and uplifted by that spirit.
We are the primary provider of programs for individuals, families and children in the tri-county area of St. Charles, Lincoln, and Warren.Â Services are available for those who earn at or below 50% of the state median income.
We offer comprehensive case management and wrap around services that connect those in need with many community partners.Â Together, we work to stabilize and move them toward a state of sustainability.
The Care Service is heavily supported by the community with more than 100,000 volunteer hours per year in addition to donations of material, labor, food and monetary contributions.

More About Us
Our Motto: Â â€śPlanting the Seed of Hopeâ€¦Breaking the Chain of Despairâ€ť
The Care Service, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit agency, has made considerable improvements in service delivery for our clients over years.Â We are now formally accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA), (View Press Release), have used best practices in developing our business standards, and have put quality control methods in place to become a model agency for others across the state and the nation.Â These measures increase our ability to protect families, especially children, the elderly and disabled, regardless of race, age, gender, or religion from the despair, hopelessness and social injustice caused by poverty.
