Families of Distinction


The Illinois Association of Community Action Agencies (IACAA) sponsors the annual Families of Distinction

awards program in Springfield, Illinois during their annual conference in May.  Each of the 36 Community Action

Agencies can nominate a local family to be honored at the event.  DeKalb County Community Action has

nominated families over the past years.  Below is a list of these families who have achieved much success while

working in DeKalb County Community Action programs.
