About Us

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.
