  • Making a Difference in Illinois

    TASC is a path to health and recovery for people involved in criminal justice, juvenile justice, child welfare, and public health systems in Illinois. We are independent advocates and case managers for our clients, helping men, women, and adolescents get the right services to meet their needs.

    Working in partnership with government systems and hundreds of community-based service providers across the state, TASC serves 27,000 people annually. Our programs save taxpayer dollars, reduce drug abuse and recidivism, and motivate long-term success.

On any given day, between 25–30 percent of Cook County Jail inmates suffer from mental health disorders. The majority of these adults are in jail for non-violent offences associated with their mental health issues and would be better served by treatment rather than incarceration.
