Welcome to the Illinois Initiative. Our goal is to help those in the most need to the highest ethical standard and to the maximum effect. This includes ensuring that basic human needs are met as well as responding to deeper environmental and social justice concerns with projects that foster individual and community empowerment. We currently serve Southern Illinois.

We are a branch of the Initiative Collective. There are other branches of the Initiative Collective across the United States and in the United Kingdom.

The Illinois Initiative was founded on February 11, 2013.
