In addition, we have established stakeholder organizations throughout the state of Illinois including organizations who service special needs, underserved and vulnerable populations including low-income populations, rural populations, African-Americans, Latinos, American Indians, individuals with a disability, young adults, homeless and individuals with Limited English Proficiency. This unified network includes hospitals and clinics, government agencies, school systems, community-based organizations, small business associations, faith-based organizations and large employers.
