Illinois Human Services Commission Public Hearings

Joel L. Rubin, MSW, CAE

The Illinois Human Services Commission was established in December of 2009 to make recommendations to the governor and Illinois General Assembly about providing high quality human services to Illinois citizens. Its reports can be found at .

The commission will be holding a series of public hearings. It is imperative that the commission hears from members of the social work community regarding such key issues as unmet service needs, underserved populations, funding issues, geographic disparities, future challenges, etc. The NASW Illinois Chapter is in the process of developing written testimony for the commission and would welcome any of your insights. The following is a scheduled of the public hearings. If you are able to attend any of the events, please contact either Joel Rubin, .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
