Public Engagement Newsletter (PEN) Mailing List Registration

As part of our ongoing public engagement efforts, the Illinois Department of Human Services (DHS) is committed to engaging residents to assist us in the development of policy for the department, help increase greater access and awareness of our programs and services, and advise DHS on community issues surrounding our most vulnerable populations.

While there are many wonderful and innovative things happening inside of our more than 120 local offices across the State, behind the scenes DHS is also bringing new voices together to create direct dialogue with executives from DHS to help translate those conversations into action.

Our quarterly Public Engagement Newsletter (PEN) serves as a catalyst to inform you about those public engagement efforts and give you an up-close and personal look at some of those activities, meetings and conversations with groups and individuals that are happening on a daily basis. At the same time, we highlight how our programs and services are changing the lives of individuals and families all across the State from prevention to rehabilitation.

If you'd like to receive our Public Engagement Newsletter for either yourself, your colleagues, networks, community partners and/or clients, please take a few minutes to fill out our online PEN registration mailing list!
