Whether you have been personally touched by The Center for Youth and Family Solutions, you share in our mission to impact lives, or you would like to give back to your local community, your contribution to our organization allows us to continue to engage and serve children and families in need across Central and East Central Illinois and the Quad Cities.
There are several different ways to donate to CYFS. Gifts will be directed toward the greatest needs or you can always designate to a specific community or program if you prefer.

On September 5, 2015, the Peoria Journal Star published an article featuring an interview with Tim Glancy and Penny Powell, discussing the situation facing East Peoria’s Richland Farms neighborhood once the Tazewell Community Area Project (TCAP) is shut down. TCAP activities include after school and summer programs to give kids productive activities to do while not in the classroom, food pantries, community programs, and workshops on home security, cyberbullying and other topics. The article lays out the harsh reality facing the residents of the community as a result of the loss of funding to the TCAP program in the FY16 budget. In response to this article, several people and organizations have stepped up to voice their support of the program and offered solutions to help keep the prevention program going.
One of the most immediate responses has come from long-time TCAP funder the Caterpillar Foundation. The Foundation has offered CYFS a $20,000 Dollar Challenge Grant to help continue funding TCAP, as a short-term funding solution. This short-term funding source will allow CYFS to continue operating the program until long-term solutions can be found, and will allow CYFS and the Local Initiatives Support Corporation to explore other long-term funding opportunities to continue funding the program further.
Please help us meet this challenge set by Caterpillar to raise the funds needed to keep providing a vital community service to children and families in one of the most in-need communities in Illinois.
For more information on how you can help us meet the TCAP Challenge for this East Peoria community, please call Tim Glancy at 309-323-6628.
