ROMEOVILLE, Ill. — In recognition of their decades of service to vulnerable people in Will County and the surrounding areas, state Rep. Natalie Manley, D-Joliet, filed a resolution of congratulations for Guardian Angels Community Service on their 125th anniversary.
“Guided by the principle that people have the right to self-determination on their journey towards healing, Guardian Angel has served hundreds of thousands of community members of all ages,” Manley said. “From providing aid to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault to recruiting and training foster parents, Guardian Angel lives by their namesake each day.”
House Resolution 946 recognizes Guardian Angel Community Services on its 125th anniversary. Guardian Angel Community Services, founded by the Sisters of St. Francis Mary Immaculate of Joliet in 1897, is the oldest social service organization in Will County. The organization is an Illinois Child Welfare Organization and is accredited by the Council on Accreditation, an independent international human services organization. Guardian Angel provides a litany of services for people of all ages and abilities.
“I am constantly inspired by Guardian Angels’ steadfast commitment to serving vulnerable people in our community. There is nothing I take more seriously than our shared vision of public service and the idea all humans deserve to live safely and free from violence and abuse,” said Manley. “Congratulations to Guardian Angel Community Services on 125 years of excellence. Our community is infinitely better because of your work, and I am eager to see what the next 125 years will bring.”
