If you are facing a hardship and have a need, there are a few ways One Body Collaboratives can provide assistance.
Resource Coordination Center
One option is to contact our Resource Coordination Center. The Resource Center is available by phone Monday - Friday from 9am to 2pm by calling 815-282-4384. Your call will be answered by our Resource Center Manager, or one of our volunteers. You will be asked a series of questions about your need, so that we may provide the best possible resource for you. If you call outside of our office hours, you can leave a message and your call will be returned the next business day.
Community Resource Directory
Another option, is to view our Community Resource Directory, linked here: https://onebody.directory.meettheneed.org/ The Directory is easily searchable to find available community resources.
Getting Ahead Classes
If you’ve spent part of your life—or most of your life—struggling to get by in the world, the idea of actually getting ahead might seem out of reach. But even if your story has been filled with barriers, vanishing opportunities, and setbacks, the next chapter can change all that. Yes, you have to write it, but you don’t have to do it alone.
In a facilitated group setting, Getting Ahead in a Just-Gettin’-By World takes you step by step through a discovery of yourself like no other. It’s not just about how you got where you are now. It’s also about what comes next to build the life you want. Plus, the workbook helps you develop relationships with people who will support you all along the way.
