PEOPLE'S RESOURCE CENTER
People's Resource Center (PRC) is a not-for-profit, social service organization founded in 1975 by community members looking to help neighbors who were facing financial hardship. Inspired by social justice heroes like Martin Luther King, Jr., Dorothy Day and Jane Addams, founders Dorothy McIntyre, Father Tom Peyton and a group of volunteers sought to do more than start a local food pantry.
Over four decades of community building, PRC has grown into a multiservice agency focused on interwoven services and tools that support and strengthen more than 7,000 families each year. We remain one of the only multi-service human services agencies in the Western Suburbs of Chicago offering basic needs assistance, educational tools and personalized services to help families find stability and pursue their goals.
PRC’s programs are grouped into two categories. Families searching for immediate assistance can access our Emergency Services Program, which improves access to food, seasonal clothing, and financial assistance. Residents looking to work towards personal and professional goals can access educational programs, resources and workshops through our Empowerment Program, which includes Adult Literacy, Computer Training and Access, Community Art, and Job Assistance.
PRC has received 13 consecutive four-star ratings from Charity Navigator, an accomplishment achieved by only 1% of nonprofits nationally. We are a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity and a multi-year winner of the “Best of Wheaton” award in the social services category. We have received Bank of America’s “Neighborhood Builder” award and been recognized as “Agency Partner of the Year” by United Way of Metropolitan Chicago.
PRC counts on over 2000 volunteers who devote 99,000 hours each year and our 49 employees (44 FTEs) to provide service to the community. In FY22 we budgeted $4.8 Million for these operating expenses of which 61% is for payroll, contracted and staff related expenses.
