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.
