Townline facility must close until June 30th.
IDHS sent a memo stating Day Service Programs across the state must remain closed until June 30th. This is disappointing news for our residents, staff, and many of our friends who live at home and with other provider agencies. We will continue to use this time to prepare for the day we can reopen along with expanding the virtual programming opportunities we are developing to offer remotely.
In light of the recent articles published in our local news websites…
We want to ensure you our staff is doing everything in our power and taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our staff and the people we support.
The cases that we have had to deal with have been very mild and all but one have recovered.

Shelter-In-Place extended – Townline facility must close until May 31st.
Governor Pritzker has extended the Shelter in Place order through the end of May. EP!C is extending our restrictions and closures to restrict entrance to our offices and group homes to staff only, and will continue to follow strict protocols to ensure the safety of our individuals, our staff and the community as a whole. We thank you for staying home, so we can all stay safe. We will get through this together.
Shelter-In-Place extended – Townline facility must close until May 4th.
Due to Governor Pritzker extending the Shelter in Place order through Thursday, April 30th, EP!C is extending our restrictions and closures beyond April 15th. EP!C will continue to restrict entrance to our group homes to anyone other than EP!C staff until Friday, May 1st. Townline and Day Services will remain closed until Monday, May 4th. We hope everyone in our community and state honors the Shelter in Place Order, so we are not looking at another extension.
The Illinois Department of Human Services has stated that our Townline facility must close until April 15th.
The building will only be accessible to assigned Townline staff. Visitors at our other sites are also asked to be restricted if possible. If visitors have to attend they will be asked health questions upon arrival. All individuals living in an EP!C Group Home or Host Home or other Supported Living will need to stay home until at least April 15th. Together we will get through these challenges. We continually look to provide safe and healthy environments for our staff, our community and ultimately the people we support. Thank you for your continued cooperation and understanding.
Have you seen the trend of putting hearts in your window so people walking or driving have something beautiful to look at and lift their spirits? Heart Hunters is a global movement and the residents of EP!C’s 16 group homes have had a lot of fun getting creative and participating with our own hearts.
If you see them make sure you wave because someone is probably watching out the window.
