There will be no group meetings held onsite at IMPACT CIL during this time.

While we hope to fully reopen our office as soon as possible, you can follow our updates on our website www.impactcil.org and Facebook page www.facebook.com – IMPACT CIL

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this global health crises.

IMPACT CIL will continue to follow CDC guidelines and the State of Illinois mandates to ensure the safety of those we serve and will adhere to the reopening plan as authorized by Governor Pritzker.
