Important Announcement:  24-Hour Stabilization Services

The Division of Developmental Disabilities is pleased to announce the award of two contracts to implement the 24-hour stabilization services, which we are now calling Short Term Stabilization Homes (SSHs). The provider for the northern part of the state is Envision Unlimited, and the provider for the central/southern area is Individual Advocacy Group.

These two providers will be purchasing homes and hiring staff while partnering with Division staff and the Support Service Teams (Illinois Crisis Prevention Network) to develop the policies, procedures and data needs for this new service. There will be two 4-person homes in the southern suburbs of Chicago and two 4-person homes available in the Springfield area. At this point, we anticipate some capacity will be available in September with all capacity available shortly after that. More information will follow about how these homes will assist adults with behavioral challenges who are struggling to maintain their homes in the community
