ABOUT US

DuPage Federation on Human Services Reform is a collaboration of government and key community organizations that identify ways a local community can address its human services  needs using its own resources and resourcefulness.

OUR MISSION

The Federation's mission is to  generate cross-sector solutions that leverage expertise to address the human service needs of the DuPage region.  

OUR HISTORY

The Federation was formed in 1995 by a governor's office initiative as one of five 'learning laboratories', whose role was to demonstrate a new approach to collaboration between government and community in the implementation of welfare reform. Since that time, our role has evolved far beyond those origins.

Today, the Federation is a non-profit planning and change management organization that has been intimately involved in the development of the health care safety net and has helped expand the health and human service system to better meet the needs of the area's changing population.

 
 

COUNCIL OF COMMUNITY LEADERS

The Council of Community Leaders identifies issues that impact the life outcomes of at-risk children, individuals and families and examines the ability of any one organization or sector in the community to address the issue(s).  The Council then assesses the issue(s), and develops and implements strategies for addressing the issues.

The Council explores emerging trends and issues at quarterly meetings.  For more information, including meeting material, please visit our Council page.
