[May 12, 2008]  The Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois is about helping people and changing lives. Last week, the private, nonprofit organization celebrated just that at statewide celebrations in Springfield. May is National Community Action Month.

The week of celebrations began on May 4 with the awarding of the agency's Family of Distinction Award to the Jennifer Glick family. Over the past 10 years, the family successfully moved to self-sufficiency and homeownership with the support of Community Action services. Jennifer Glick is now employed by the Community Action Head Start program as a family partnerships specialist. In this role, she helps Head Start families set goals and access resources in their efforts to become empowered and set goals for their future.

Celebrations continued on May 6, when three Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois staff members graduated from the Family and Community Development certification program, coordinated by the Illinois Association of Community Action Agencies. Darla Buss of Lincoln, Jennifer Glick of Lincoln and Cathy Buggar of Clinton earned the certifications to enhance the services they provide to Community Action customers.

Steve Lobb of Clinton, governing board president for Community Action, received the state association's Harry Ring Award for his outstanding leadership and contribution to the Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois. Lobb has been president since April 2006.

Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois, formerly CIEDC, is a nonprofit, private organization serving DeWitt, Fulton, Logan, Mason, Menard and Piatt counties. For more information, visit
