PACT publishes county resource directories on an annual basis for parent use for those counties in which we provide services. The resource directories contain information on social service agencies that provide services to families. While we endeavor to keep these updated, the information changes quickly. If you become aware of outdated information, please click here to use this form to notify the webmaster. If you need assistance in contacting an agency for help or you need help and cannot locate an agency with appropriate services, please contact your Family Advocate or Home Visitor.

Directories by County

    Policy Council is a group of current and former parents and community representatives who are in leadership roles to work towards positive change for families. The 32 members of this group consist of current and former Head Start parents, Early Head Start parents, and community representatives that share in a common goal, “to benefit the children”. Policy Council works together, learning about leadership, building on foundations and dreams, all the while making a difference through parent and community involvement.

    Policy Council, through shared decision making with the Governing Board, learns about program planning, setting goals, personnel decisions, and budgets. They learn about parliamentary procedure, Head Start Performance Standards, program Self-Assessment, and have the opportunity to attend National and Regional conferences.

    Becoming a member of the Policy Council is a commitment, a chance for personal growth, and an opportunity to serve others. It is a win, win situation for everyone.

    If you would be interested in serving on the Policy Council for PACT, talk with your Family Advocate, Teacher, Site Supervisor, or you can call Millie Young at 217-773-3903.

    PACT’s Strategic Planning Process for our new plan began in Winter 2016, with a dedicated group of staff, representing agency-wide positions. From this group a Steering Committee formed to put forth new goals and objectives for Policy Council and Board approval early in 2018. Work on the goals (by committees or staff operations) will be reviewed by the Steering Committee quarterly and reported annually.
