People's Resource Center (PRC) is a grassroots organization in DuPage County, Illinois, founded in 1975 by community members looking to help neighbors who were facing financial hardship. Inspired by social justice heroes like Martin Luther King, Jr., Dorothy Day and Jane Addams, founders Dorothy McIntyre, Father Tom Peyton and a group of volunteers sought to do more than start a local food pantry. They wanted to build an organization across DuPage County that would help people overcome the isolating experience of poverty in the suburbs. In a small house on a quiet street in Wheaton, Illinois, they asked their friends to bring sacks of groceries and opened the doors. That first year they shared food with 125 local families.
Today, PRC operates one of the largest food pantry programs in the western Chicago suburbs, providing nearly 32,000 low-income DuPage County residents with basic human services and relationship-based educational programs to create paths to self-sufficiency. PRC’s programs include the following: full choice food pantries, clothes closets, social services, homeless prevention services, job search coaching, adult literacy instruction, computer technology access and training, citizenship classes, and art enrichment classes for children and adults. All PRC services are provided FREE to client families, eliminating cost as a barrier to access.
The Board of Director’s is currently comprised of 17 highly committed members of the community that abide by term limits. PRC has a staff of 41 paid full and part-time employees and a dedicated volunteer base of over 2,500 individuals. PRC’s FY2017 operating expenses exceeded $9.4 million.
