Legislature working on reimbursements for South Suburban Family Shelter

Homewood-based South Suburban Family Shelter (SSFS), an agency assisting domestic violence victims, may soon get reimbursements owed by the State of Illinois. The Illinois House of Representatives approved legislation that would pay SSFS for services it has provided to clients over the past year. Co-sponsors of the legislation are Reps. Will Davis (D-Homewood), Al Riley (D-Hazel Crest) and Anthony DeLuca (D-Chicago Heights). The bill is now in the Illinois Senate. Domestic violence agencies were inadvertently omitted from the state’s stopgap funding bill in June 2016, but have continued to offer services . . .
