LSSI is grateful to the following foundations for their generous grants that support a variety of programming across Illinois.

The Aigner Foundation gave a grant of $50,000 to provide start-up funding for LSSI's mobile crisis management program that started in July 2018. The program deploys emergency mental health caseworkers to individuals experiencing severe symptoms of a mental illness or substance-related issue, in their home or community, on Chicago's north and northwest side.

Grand Victoria Foundation made a two-year grant totaling $40,000 for the LSSI's Elgin Center which offers a variety of inpatient and outpatient drug/alcohol treatment services designed for people who want to learn how to live substance-free.

A grant for $2,000 was received from Enterprise Holdings Foundation to support LSSI's pilot program for Therapeutic Foster Care. At LSSI's foster care offices in Aurora, Chicago, and Rockford, Therapeutic Foster Care places children with histories of severe trauma and emotional/behavioral needs in family homes while avoiding institutional settings.
