    Organization Mission

    In 1975, a group of residents recognized that disparities in DuPage County prevented local families from having what they needed to thrive. They rented a house on a quiet street in Wheaton and asked their friends to bring bags of groceries. That inaugural year, they shared groceries with 125 families.

    Over four decades of community building, PRC has grown into a full-service agency focused on interwoven services and tools that support and strength more than 7,000 families each year.

    Our programs are grouped into two categories. Families searching for immediate assistance can access our Emergency Services Program, which improves access to food, seasonally-appropriate clothing, and financial assistance. Residents looking to work towards personal and professional goals can access educational programs, resources and workshops through our Empowerment Program, which includes Adult Literacy, Computer Training and Access, Community Art, and Job Assistance.
