Anixter Center participants and staff are asking our fellow Illinois residents to commit to funding community-based services in our state. This is part of a statewide social media campaign called Commit to the Community – Commit to Me which is being led by the Illinois Association of Rehabilitation Facilities (IARF). The photos are being posted on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to show the people of Illinois the faces of those who will be impacted if there are Human Service Budget. The overall goal is for legislators in the State of Illinois to take action to support the funding of community-based services.
