Current COVID-19 Response Plan

COVID-19 Relief Fund

As part of our response to the COVID-19 Pandemic, MSV identified families and individuals who are most affected due to loss of income. We are asking supporters to make a gift which will allow us to provide stipends for food and other necessities to be delivered on an ongoing basis. Each gift is matched dollar-for-dollar with 100% going directly to families in need. 

Yes, I want to help!

A Message from Marillac St. Vincent Family Services Regarding the COVID-19 Virus

Updated May 11, 2020

Marillac St. Vincent Family Services is closely monitoring the local impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and we are focused on how we can best prepare and give support to our children, families, clients, and staff.

Our centers are closed for the duration of the Illinois Stay-at-Home orders.

Our food pantries will remain open during regular hours for grab-and-go food distribution to accommodate those in need of food resources. However, if you would like to access food resources closer to home visit the Greater Chicago Food Depository website to find a location closer to you.

For individuals in the Marillac St. Vincent community who test positive for the Coronavirus, or who have come into contact with any person(s) who have tested positive, we ask that you alert us to the test results by calling Maureen Hallagan at (847) 219-9403.

The vast majority of the parents of our 800+ students are hourly workers. Many live paycheck to paycheck. We recognize that closing our centers affects their ability to work and provide for their families. We have been identifying individuals and families in our network who have been hardest hit by this crisis and distributing aid through our COVID-19 Relief Fund, offering direct support where the need is greatest. If you have the means to support this effort with a donation, please scroll to the top of this page and tap or click the button to make a contribution.

In addition, 140 of our 205 employees are hourly workers. All staff, both hourly and salaried, have been assured that they will still be paid through the duration of this closure.

Thank you for all you do to support and sustain the mission of our organization. We hope that everyone in our community remains safe and in good spirits as we work collectively to address this public health challenge.
