PUBLIC NOTICE — FOR YOUR SAFETY!

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, please note the following changes in service:



The American Job Center SI is here to assist you in meeting your job search, educational, and/or daily needs. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now open by appointment only. At this time, no staff from IDES, Crosswalk, or DHS are onsite for services. Referrals will be done in contact with IDES, Crosswalk, and DHS for requested services.

If you need assistance with your unemployment needs, you must call 1.800.244.5631 or access the IDES website at www.ides.illinois.gov. To certify or for questions about certifying, you need to call 1.312.338.4337. The American Job Center staff can help you with accessing the IDES site; however they cannot help with resetting any passwords, or answer questions about Unemployment Benefits. This MUST be done by calling the 800#.

For assistance with Crosswalk services, please contact their main office at 618.937.3581, or complete the pre-registration application on their new website at www.helpllinoisfamilies.com. Once the application is complete, Crosswalk staff will contact you about finishing your application process. The Center staff can provide assistance with accessing the new website; however they cannot complete the application for you. Any and all questions must be asked by contacting Crosswalk.

During your scheduled appointment, a face mask will be required. If you do not have a mask, the American Job Center staff can provide you with one. Social distancing guidelines are in place and must be followed. Based on guidelines from our state Interagency Team and IDPH, we are required to ask the following questions:


  1. Have you been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID19 within the past 14 days?
  2. Are you experiencing a cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat?
  3. Have you had a fever in the last 48 hours?
  4. Have you had new loss of taste or smell?

In our efforts to keep everyone healthy, we appreciate your assistance and understanding that on the day of your scheduled appointment, if you are not feeling well, are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms, and/or running a fever, we ask that you call and reschedule your appointment.

Please contact the American Job Center SI at 618.998.9570 to schedule your appointment today!
