On April 26, a big crew of employees from Exelon volunteered their time at the new house on Illinois Street. They tore out the bathrooms, walls, floor covering, drop ceiling, capped all the electric, tire out plumbing, landscaped and more. We were shocked when we realized they had done so much demolition inside yet somehow left it cleaner than they found it. Exelon also donated plants, mulch, and a roll off dumpster.
The house is a donation from Wells Fargo, along with $7,500 towards renovation. The Dunham Fund donated $20,000 as well. Established by John C. Dunham in 1996, funded in 2007 in accordance with the provisions of Mr. Dunham’s trust and nurtured during the intervening years by Mr. Dunham and a board of personally appointed advisors, the Dunham Fund honors Mr. Dunham’s life and philanthropy through grants to organizations that have the vision and programs to help fulfill Mr. Dunham’s dream of “making the world a more comfortable, safer place for mankind to live and prosper.”

Senator Rezin sent by a certificate of the IL Senate Recognition of SU’s 50th Anniversary. Thank you for thinking of us in the midst of a very busy session, Senator!
Our party turned out great–450 people in attendance. People said they really enjoyed it and were virtually all surprised to see just how many different things go on at SU.
SU could never have made it 50 years without the support of all of our friends and the Streator Community. Thank you all. Here’s to the next 50!!
Check out this article on a young man we serve. His story is incredible and we are so glad to be a part of his success. This is the program for which the state eliminated funding several years ago (and we’re still mad about that), so his success is a tribute the the support of our friends and community, the LaSalle County Mental Health Board and the Streator Area United Way.
