  • Illinois social service workers are struggling, need your support

    Apr 06, 2016
    Letter by Art Dykstra, the CEO of Trinity Services, to the editor of the Chicago Tribune:

    Illinois social service workers are struggling

    The state of Illinois’ ongoing budget crisis continues to adversely impact millions of people. Add to that number the 27,000 Illinois residents with developmental and emotional disabilities who rely on direct support professionals for their daily care and support.

    DSPs have not had a pay raise in eight years, earning an average of $9.35 an hour. The lack of a living wage provided by the state has made it virtually impossible to recruit and retain qualified staff. These are the people who provide daily personal care — such as bathing and dressing — teach life skills and support to our state’s most vulnerable citizens. Why would people engage in such physically and emotionally draining work when they could earn $12.70 an hour to start at Macy’s? Or go to Amazon, which is hiring 500 workers at its Joliet warehouse, for $12.46 an hour?

    The inability to compete with other employers is at unprecedented levels, with staff vacancies at some human service providers as high as 30 percent. Without an increase in state funding, this crisis will only grow.

    But there is a solution: Two bills have been introduced into the Illinois legislature this year to increase the starting wages of DSPs to $15 an hour. Even if you are not personally affected, you almost certainly have relatives or neighbors who regard these folks as their lifeline. Or perhaps someday a loved one will be in a devastating accident and will depend on DSPs for round-the-clock care?

    These bills will save lives.

    — Art Dykstra, executive director, Trinity Services, Inc., New Lenox

    The Trinity Triumph 5K celebrates the triumphs and achievements – big or small – of those who participate and of the adults and children with disabilities who are served by Trinity Services.

    Runners and walkers of all ages gather to provide inspiration, draw strength from others and enjoy the camaraderie while supporting Trinity Services, a 65-year-old non-sectarian, non-profit organization that serves 3,500 children and adults with disabilities in 30 Illinois communities in Will, Cook, DuPage, Grundy, Peoria, Jackson, and St. Clair counties, and Reno, Nevada.

    For those who prefer a shorter route, a 1K walk is available. The 5K course is certified by USA Track and Field and the race will be chip-timed for accurate results. Awards will be given to fastest male and female as well as top performers in various age ranges.

    Celebrate your story, be an inspiration, or participate in memory of someone. Share your reason for running or walking on race day on the Wall of Triumph and online on Facebook at http://wwww.facebook.com/TrinityTriumph5K

    The first 200 pre-registered participants will receive a tech Tshirt.

    GET YOUR REGISTRATION REFUNDED!
    Participants also may opt to create their own fundraising page online when you register or download a pledge form at www.trinitytriumph.com. Collect $150 or more in donations for Trinity Services, and we will send you a refund check after race day. Ask friends, family and coworkers to support Trinity’s mission to help people with disabilities live full and abundant lives.
