What We Do

Since 1975, People's Resource Center (PRC) has been bringing neighbors together to respond to hunger and poverty in DuPage County.

Nearly 30,000 DuPage residents rely on PRC for help each year. With a team of over 2,400 volunteers, we offer nutritious food and other basic necessities like clothes and rent assistance for people facing tough times.  And we connect people with resources—education and tutoring, jobs, technology, art, a caring community—to create a future of hope and opportunity for all.

PRC is able to provide these services because of the generosity and support from our neighbors. More than 1,500 volunteers work with our small staff offering  time, skills and resources to help their neighbors. Donors contribute food, clothing, books, computers, and money to support our work.  The majority of our support comes from caring neighbors right here in DuPage County.
