In the past, Aging Care Connections relied primarily on support received from state and federal governments and local United Ways. However, over the years, we have had to develop new funding programs and revenue streams to sustain our levels and quality of services to older adults and their families.
Client Program Sustainability Needs: $ 400,000
- Building adequate funding to sustain current and future program service levels and quality while navigating through funding challenges from state, federal or United Way funding.
- Strengthening our program/service delivery model by adding a Clinical Staff Position to better respond to the growing number of clients and needs.
- Strengthening our business/financial and development/fundraising infrastructure and operating efficiencies to generate increased private funding to support our growing client base and program/services.
Facility Capital Needs $ 600,000
Repairing roof and create an accessible building entrance with a new lift and ADA Compliant ramp; refurbishing our Information and Assistance Office and (3) restrooms and construct (7) new Offices/Program Service Rooms to better serve growing number of clients.
Constructing (8) new Social Service Offices to serve growing client population and a new Conference Room for support groups and education programs; tuck-pointing and installing new awnings and signage on exterior of building.
Replacing all exterior windows with high efficient/energy saving units; refurbishing the Studio Conference Room, kitchen and remaining offices and restrooms; and create a new Central Client File Storage Room.
Campaign Need $1,000,000
We received a lead gift of $200,000 from the State of Illinois “Illinois Jobs Now!” capital program in support of our green and ADA compliance initiatives. The balance of $800,000 will need to be raised through a broad-based community campaign supported by individuals and community, corporate and foundation partners.
