The Illinois Department of Human service decided to eliminate funding for its Community Youth Service Programs. This will mean the reduction and/or closing of over 300 youth programs, prevention services, and community based groups throughout the state. This means that safe havens for young people will be closing immediately, and thousands of youth in communities throughout the state will be place in harm’s way.
