* I received this e-mail today from Lutheran Social Services of Illinois…
I cannot thank you enough for lifting up the work of LSSI again in association with your birthday. So far you have raised $1,320!
Again, thanks for lending your support to our work. You know that many human service organizations across Illinois are experiencing extreme stress because of the continuing erosion of the state’s ability to fund services. Even large providers like LSSI—organizations that for years now have made significant adjustments to try to preserve vital human care services—have gotten perilously close to the brink.
At LSSI, we appreciate your personal commitment to us and your willingness to advocate for us among your followers. We also appreciate your professional awareness of the stress under which the whole human care delivery system in Illinois is laboring.
