As first responders, we continue offering our critical services, mainly focused on Mental Health and Substance Use Treatment, but in this unprecedented situation, we decided to go beyond and launched the Operation "Counting Lives, Saving Lives" which is a multi-faceted grassroots campaign premised on the values of self-determination, collaboration, and utilizing a hub and spoke model that seeks to address the needs of our community during this COVID-19 Health Pandemic.
What We Do
Rincon Family Services receives $20,000 COVID-19 Grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois
April 1, 2020 - Chicago, IL – To help ease the ongoing needs of Illinoisans created by the COVID-19 pandemic, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) has awarded Rincon Family Services a $20,000 grant as part of BCBSIL’s latest round of giving aimed at helping the helpers. This program will support families in meeting basic housing costs, increase financial resiliency to cover other costs that families have incurred and reduce some stress in our communities related to financial hardship.
