Sponsor of the Month
Family Service is pleased to honor two local churches as our sponsor for the month for their recent and ongoing support of the people served by our First Call for Help service. We want to thank the First Presbyterian Church of Champaign for their September donation of $572.35 and the Stratford Park Bible Chapel for their September donation of $400. Both of these congregations make several donations a year so we have funds to provide emergency relief to people who need a one-time assistance with medication, a power bill, or another basic need that cannot be met through other community assistance programs. Thank you for your continued care and compassion to those in need in our community.
The 14th edition of the Support Group Directory is a service of the Family Service Self-Help Center and lists hundreds of area support groups by category. The 2013-14 directories are made possible by a generous donation from Carle. They are available for pick-up from the Self-Help Center at Family Service at 405 S. State St. in Champaign. Please call us at 217-352-0099 to make arrangements to pick up your complimentary copy today. A donation of $5 is requested for additional copies.
You may also download and print the 8 1/2″ x 11″ Support Group Directory from this link.
