SUPPORT OUR FUNDRAISING EFFORTS
As State and Federal grants have all but disappeared, Drug Court has come to rely upon the generous support of our benefactors to sustain the important work that we do in Kankakee County. Check our web page for notice of up-coming events such as our Annual Dinner and Auction. You may also donate at any time through the "Donate Now" button on the website.
The Kankakee County Drug Court Program needs your help!
The savings offered by Drug Courts is substantial. The Office of National Drug Control Policy estimates that Drug Courts yield a savings of $21,000 annually when the average cost per participant is $2000 and the cost of incarceration is $23,000.
Your generous support enables us to help families live healthy, drug-free lives, address new threats facing America’s young people, help friends and family members find assistance for loved ones with drug or alcohol problems and conduct essential research to ensure that our programs make a difference.
Thanks for your support!
