Meeting Our Community's Needs – Neighbor to Neighbor
Since 1975, People's Resource Center (PRC) has been bringing neighbors together to respond to hunger and poverty in DuPage County.
Nearly 30,000 DuPage residents rely on PRC for help each year. With a team of over 2,600 volunteers, we offer nutritious food and other basic necessities like clothes and rent assistance for people facing tough times. We also connect people with resources—education and tutoring, jobs, technology, art, a caring community—to create a future of hope and opportunity for all.
PRC is able to provide these services because of the generosity and support from our neighbors. More than 2,500 volunteers work with our small staff offering time, skills and resources to help their neighbors. Donors contribute food, clothing, books, computers, and money to support our work. The majority of our support comes from caring neighbors right here in DuPage County.
People's Resource Center community exists to respond to basic human needs, promote dignity and justice, and create a future of hope and opportunity for the residents of DuPage County, Illinois through discovering and sharing personal and community resources.
From our humble beginnings in 1975, handing groceries out to neighbors in need from a small house on Indiana Avenue in Wheaton, we have grown to become a multi-site, multi-service organization serving tens of thousands. All the while, we've remained grounded in grassroots support. We're still serving the community “neighbor to neighbor.”
