We're Here to Serve

Community Link is an innovative, important community resource for families and caregivers established by a small group of parents in Clinton County, Illinois over 40 years ago — a resource that helps families better manage the care of their loved ones. We serve clients in Bond, Clinton, Effingham, Jefferson, Jersey, Madison, Marion, Monroe, St. Clair and Washington Counties. We have residential facilities in Aviston, Breese, Carlyle, Germantown and Highland.
