On April 4th, Executive Director Art Dykstra testified before a joint meeting of the Illinois House Human Services, Special Needs Services and Appropriations committees to draw legislators’ attention to the issues Trinity Services and other disability service providers in Illinois are facing because of a lack of appropriate funding from the State.

Art focused on the fact that “there is no such thing as all of a sudden,” as this problem has built throughout the years to become the major workforce crisis we face today.

The link below features full video of the hearing, including Art’s testimony, as well as testimony from Gus van de Brink, executive director of Sertoma Centre, Inc., and Greg O’Connor, CEO of Sparc.

This link is for internal use only, as we do not have express written permission to distribute the video publicly. Please do not share this video externally, but please do take some time to watch.

The fight for an end to the workforce crisis will continue until a solution is reached. The people we serve and the DSPs who work with them deserve more.

  • Fine Arts for Finer Lives art show to showcase local artwork, benefit Trinity Services

    Jun 15, 2017

    ROMEOVILLE, IL — An art show set for this summer in Romeoville will provide local artists an opportunity to showcase their work and raise funds for Trinity Services.

    Fine Arts for Finer Lives is set to open with a ceremony from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, June 22, at the Brent and Jean Wadsworth Family Gallery inside the Oremus Fine Arts Center of Lewis University, located at 1 University Parkway in Romeoville.

    The show will run until Friday, Aug. 11, and will feature the work of approximately one dozen local artists, including that of Brittany Bishop, who organized the art show.

    Bishop is finishing her master’s degree in counseling, with a focus on art therapy, at Lewis and came up with the idea to blend her love for art with her support of Trinity’s mission. When she was an undergraduate at Lewis, she interned at Trinity Services’ Oak Center for Behavioral Health in Lockport and was impressed by Trinity’s focus on helping the clients there achieve greater independence, she said.

    "My ultimate goal is to make art, write and save the world, and this was just one idea that I had that could work toward that lofty goal,” Bishop said. “I believe in the power of art. It beautifies. It protests. It invokes strong emotions, and making it can be so healing.”

    The art featured at Fine Arts for Finer Lives will be an eclectic mix of jewelry, paintings, mixed media, cloth dolls, pottery and photography.

    All art can be purchased, and prices range from $5-$400, approximately. All purchased pieces will be available for pickup after Aug. 11.

    “I thought that by creating an art show that gives back to the community and helps unknown artists get their name in the world, this would make a difference,” Bishop said. “Even if it is just a small step, I would love to see this art show becoming an annual event.”

    All are welcome to attend Fine Arts for Finer Lives’ opening ceremony and to stop by the gallery during its business hours: 9 a.m.-9 p.m. daily.

    NEW LENOX, IL – Trinity Services, Inc. is planning its 8th Annual Trinity Triumph 5K Run/Walk for 7 p.m. Thursday, June 22, at the New Lenox Village Commons.

    All proceeds from the race support the people with developmental disabilities and mental illness whom Trinity Services supports.

    The 5K’s tagline, “Run. Walk. Celebrate!” encourages participants to share their personal stories and inspiration for partaking in the race with fellow runners and walkers. The race celebrates the triumphs and achievements — big or small — of all who participate, as well as of the adults and children whom Trinity supports.

    The Trinity Triumph 5K is chip-timed on a course certified by USA Track & Field. For those who would prefer a shorter route, a 1K walk will take place concurrently with the 5K.

    A family-friendly party will take place after the race with music from Ruben Hinojosa, aka DJ Midway; food, beer and nonalcoholic beverages; and an awards presentation. Medals will be given to participants who place first through third in the following male and female age groups: 10-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70 and older.

    The cost of registration is $30 for teens and adults ages 13 and older, $15 for children ages 5-12, and free for children ages 4 and younger. Registration fees increase to $40 and $20, respectively, on race day. Registration includes a performance T-shirt, food, drink and goody bag. Register online at www.trinitytriumph.com by Wednesday, June 21, or call (815) 717-3750.

    With every $30 registration fee or donation, entrants will receive a chance to win an iPad.

    Those who seek to have their registration fees refunded may raise at least $150 in donations for Trinity Services. Fundraisers can ask friends, family and coworkers to support Trinity’s mission by creating a fundraising page when registering online.

    This event brings runners and walkers of all ages together to share inspiration, gain strength from others and enjoy camaraderie, while supporting Trinity Services, a 67-year-old non-sectarian, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping children and adults with developmental disabilities and mental illness flourish and live full and abundant lives.
