Local Services

Professional Counseling Solutions provides individual, premarital, marital, and family therapy from a systemic perspective. Our services are focused on helping our clients cope with life's challenges in order to return to their optimum level of functioning prior to treatment. Services are based on a sliding fee scale and clients are not refused due to their inability to pay. School Counseling is also available in the parochial school system.

  • Spiritual Mentoring is a time-honored term for a conversation in which one person consults another who is experienced in discerning the ways in which God may be touching their life. It is helping another person awaken to the Holy Mystery in all of life and to respond to that discovery in a growing relationship with their God.  A spiritual Mentor/Companion walks with a person as a guide. The focus is to help a person deepen their relationship with God through prayer, scripture, reflection, art, music, and developing inner silence. The goal is to help the individual become aware of God’s presence, invitations and movements in their life. 

Intact Family Services is a state contracted service to mitigate further child abuse and neglect. The goal of the program is to keep the family unit intact, while addressing issues that perpetuate abuse and neglect. Families in Adams, Brown, Cass, Hancock, Pike and Schuyler Counties are accepted on a referral basis from the Department of Children and Family Services.

MedAssist Program has two main components. The traditional program assists individuals to leverage long-term prescription medications, by accessing pharmaceutical companies' assistance programs. Our trained Advocates network with the patient's physician and the pharmaceutical company to ensure the patient receives their medications. The target population of the MedAssist program is those who have no or limited prescription drug coverage. The 2nd component offers additional assistance to help with immediate medication costs/co-pays, depending on the situation. The goal of the program is to sustain or enhance the quality of life of our clients.

Food Pantry strives to provide supplemental food to individuals and families that present for assistance and who meet the Department of Human Services requirements. Quincy Catholic Charities is a member of the Central Illinois Food Bank and also participates in the Feeding America Program sponsored by Wal-Mart. The food pantry is open every Monday from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. every Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and every Friday from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Clients may receive food one time per month. Additional Mobile Food Pantry Services are coming soon for rural communities in Adams, Brown, Hancock and Pike Counties.
