Serve Those in Crisis and to Prevent Homelessness and Hunger.
Sts. Joachim and Ann Care Service is the largest social service provider for individuals, families, and children in the Tri-county area of St. Charles, Lincoln, and Warren.
Our motto is… “planting the seed of hope, breaking the chain of despair.”
The Care Service works with a purpose to protect families, especially children, the elderly, and disabled, regardless of race, age, gender, or religion from the despair, hopelessness, and social injustice caused by poverty. Our vision: Safe and affordable housing is a fundamental human right, and we envision a community where not one person spends a night without food or shelter.
