Featured Mission Partners

October 2018

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

Through their Augustana Henze Endowment, Advocate Charitable Foundation awarded LSSI $15,000 to support the nurse and group wellness program at our Portage Cragin Counseling Center. This support allows LSSI to employ a nurse who provides support to individuals with severe mental illness, by providing health screenings, one-on-one health coaching, medication management, and health and wellness group activities. Advocate Health Care's mission is to serve the health needs of individuals, families and communities through a holistic philosophy rooted in our fundamental understanding of human beings as created in the image of God.

BMO Harris provided sponsorships for both LSSI's September Compassion on Tap event in Aurora and LSSI's 37th annual Amicus Certus Celebration in October. Both events support LSSI's Mental Health Initiatives, including the Welcoming Center and the new Mobile Crisis Management Team that launched in July. With a focus on collaboration, learning, and innovation, BMO Harris works with their community partners to achieve sustainable solutions and shape the future together.
