In our Illinois, we do not forget about our hardest hit families during their time of need. That's why we've helped 6,550 families in 92 counties stay in their homes through our Hardest Hit program. And more than half a million families received counseling and other resources through the Illinois Foreclosure Prevention Network that I launched last year.
What are these human services? They are things like child care to make sure that working parents have a good place for their children to go to, during the day. Same way with our community care, to help our seniors stay in their home, so they don't have to go to a nursing home. Same way with our persons with disabilities, for independent living. So we rejected the unwise efforts to cut the budget for those with disabilities. It's very important, even in a tough time, that we always retain our heart, our decency.
