Glad to support our friends at Project Connect as they “Walk the Extra Mile” to support their patients at the CORE Center.

Two days a week, Chaplain Jim provides spiritual care to the patients at Stroger Hospital who live with the health complications of AIDS/HIV. Until Bishop Anderson House stepped in, this client population had no chaplain services and Jim has quickly become the “go-to” person for staff seeking to serve patients fully.
We are also active in offering self-care events for the staff at the CORE Center–next on tap is a day of Pause, Relax and Repair workshops presented by Tayonon and Jason from A Balanced You.
The staff at Project Connect’s team would truly appreciate your support for their patients. Here are some examples of services you can help provide:
$249.00  Funding for one person to advocate for HIV services in Springfield.
$151.00  One mental health care session with a therapist.
$70.00    Six HIV tests.
