Calling All Recovery Support Service Providers in Illinois
Objective: Enhance organizational and structural changes for recovery-oriented institutions and community-based organizations to ensure the long-term viability of RSS in Illinois.
We are excited to invite Recovery Support Service Providers to join the Statewide Recovery United Taskforce. This initiative aims to bolster the capacity of RSS providers across Illinois' 102 counties, fostering improvements and creating lasting change within our communities.
Establishing a Recovery Leadership Steering Committee: Comprising representatives from five regional recovery-oriented institutions and community-based organizations (RICBs), this committee will mobilize RSS providers in each county.
Identifying and Supporting County Providers: 34 RSS county providers will receive ongoing technical assistance (TA) through the Task Force, supported by regional representatives.
Development of Statewide Task Force: This TF will convene monthly to strengthen RICBs and their networks.
Conducting Needs Assessment: Conduct ongoing assessments to identify county competencies, skills, certification, gaps, and needs.
Training Initiatives: Offering trauma-informed culturally competent training for TF members and staff, commencing Apr. 1, 2024, and continuing annually.
Financial Support: Providing additional funds to RLSC members to address region-specific needs.
Capacity Building: Offering TA for county representatives to implement practical approaches in local service delivery and community support, starting May 1, 2024.
Fundraising Strategies: Providing TA to TF county representatives for developing innovative fundraising strategies to cover PRSS costs not covered by Medicaid, starting Jun. 1, 2024, and continuing annually.
