Planting the Seed,
Breaking the Chain.
Sts. Joachim & Ann Care Service is the largest social service provider for individuals, families and children in the Tri-county area of St. Charles, Lincoln, and Warren. Our motto is... planting the seed of hope, breaking the chain of despair. We work with a purpose 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.
By forging strong relationships with schools, churches, health professionals, and other social service professionals and agencies, clients have access to greater tools, resources, advocacy and financial assistance in order to increase their chances of becoming self-reliant. Not only do these partnerships contribute to the overall health of our local communities by preventing homelessness today, but also by impacting systemic change in the lives of those we serve.
Serving Over 3,000
The impact of maintaining housing for all of the children and families we serve is immeasurable to our local communities. Homeless children face huge obstacles, including those that have a profound effect on their health. Research supports that if a family can maintain stable housing, many physical and mental health disparities are diminished.
