PUBLIC NOTICE — FOR YOUR SAFETY!


We are now following "BRIDGE TO PHASE 5" guidelines, as directed by Governor Pritzker and the state of Illinois.



Our Resource Room is NOW OPEN to the public. No appointment is necessary! The American Job Center SI is here to assist you in meeting your job search, educational, and/or daily needs. At this time, staff from IDES, Crosswalk, or DHS, are NOT available for onsite services at the American Job Center SI. Referrals for requested services will be sent to IDES, Crosswalk, and DHS via email.

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.

When entering the building or any of our offices — if you are not feeling well, are experiencing any cold or flu-like symptoms, and/or running a fever — PLEASE DO NOT ENTER! You are always welcome to reschedule any appointments. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we work to keep everyone safe and healthy.

For more information and/or assistance, please call the American Job Center SI at 618.998.9570!
