Pioneer Center continues to adapt and serve our community during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic. The safety and wellness of those we serve, our staff and our community are all top priorities. We continue to closely monitor and follow the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, McHenry County Department of Health, Illinois Department of Public Health and Illinois Department of Human Services. Important Pioneer service updates will continue to be posted on our web page.
Pioneer Center services are made possible by the generosity and support of our community. During the pandemic crisis, we have an urgent need for financial support to keep our important community programs operating and to best serve our community. Please see our “Give” website link to learn how you can help.
Although we are all dealing with a high level of stress, anxiety and uncertainty, we are confident that our collective strength, care and hope will get us through and we will persevere!
The Pioneer team loves our community, and we dedicate all our energy to keeping our community well.
IDD Day Services Program update – 06/12/2020
The Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) has issued a memo extending the closure of Community Day Services (Day Programs) in Illinois. In accordance with that, Pioneer Center Day Programs will remain closed through at least August 31, 2020. We are preparing to re-open, but please understand that this is the most recent communication from DDD, and this date may be extended. With businesses and activities opening in the State, we recognize that there are many unique challenges associated with our programs and therefore, approval to re-open our programs may be later. Our primary focus is to plan and organize a safe opening for our staff and clients.
