About Us

The DeKalb County Community Services Department (DCCS) has been DeKalb County’s official anti-poverty agency since 1984. Our mission is to help low-income families achieve and maintain their highest level of self-sufficiency by providing a variety of programs. We are a member of the Illinois Association of Community Action Agencies (IACAA) and the Community Action Partnership.

DCCS is the Community Action Agency (CAA) designated to serve DeKalb County’s low-income families. CAA’s are created by their local governments as public or private entities and have two primary purposes: to provide essential anti-poverty programs, and to advocate for the needs of the poor in their communities.
