Non-Profits Feeling the Pain

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- As state lawmakers meet this week in attempts to pass a budget, non-profit charitable organizations wait to see if their already decreased funding will take a bigger hit.
St. Coletta’s of Illinois Foundation is among the service-based organizations in this area to suffer as a result of the recession and the state’s growing budget deficit.
St. Coletta’s provides job training, housing, social and other services for children and adults with developmental disabilities and other persons with short-term needs. It is based in Tinley Park, formerly in Palos Park.
"The problem is the inconsistency in payment (from the state,)" said Wayne Kottmeyer, executive director of St. Coletta’s. "For a non-profit, it’s a very difficult hardship."
