PROACTIVE COMMUNITY SERVICES (PCS) is a 501(C) (3) community-based organization founded in 2005 serving disadvantaged, under resourced communities.
The organization provides services in the south suburbs of Cook County. Our overarching goals are to:
1) Promote chronic disease prevention and healthy lifestyles through programs that provide access to education, information, prevention, early intervention, treatment, and support;
2) Provide HIV/AIDS awareness/prevention programs
3) Provide access to programs that assist with maintaining economic self-sufficiency to prevent, reduce, or eliminate dependency; and
4) Provide programs that build assets and strengthen an individual’s ability to reduce risky behaviors and improve life outcomes.
