    Grace Place Promotes Self-Sufficiency With Support of County Prestress

    Salvation Army Grace Place Shelter empowers families and individuals in the St. Croix River Valley to become self sufficient through education and programs that stabilize their housing and income. Residents are assessed when they begin their 30-90-day stay at the shelter to fill immediate needs and plan for long-term success. They work with a case manager and have access to classes on budgeting, wellness, and resume-writing. Children and adults can receive tutoring and sign up for family activities.

    Grace Place also offers emergency services, such as housing, transportation, and rent and utility assistance. Each year, close to 400 people are housed at Grace Place. Grace Place is not just a shelter, it is a program that impacts and changes lives. 

    Through the Sonnentag Foundation, County Prestress supports dozens of charitable organizations in four key service areas: Hunger & Homelessness Support, Service Member & Veteran Support, Sexual Abuse & Domestic Assault Services, and Mentoring & Skills Building.

    Heart Haven OutReach Teens Explore Career Paths Through County Prestress Plant Tour

    Heart Haven OutReach (H2O) transforms the lives of underserved teens through caring relationships and research-based programs that support healthy development. One of the goals at H2O is for every student to pursue an educational or vocational track for their future. Students recently toured County Prestress’ Lockport, Illinois, plant to learn about vital careers in manufacturing. 

    While on the tour, students saw how County Prestress’ team members work together to manufacture insulated sandwich walls, hollowcore, and prestressed parking structure components. The students learned about the many different career opportunities County Prestress offers in the concrete manufacturing industry. Careers in skilled trades offer stability, make our communities safer and stronger, and benefit local economies. County Prestress is committed to providing resources and opportunities to students through donations and plant tours.

    “We really appreciate the time staff members at County Prestress took to inspire and motivate our youth by showing them possibilities for their future,” said Executive Director, Ryan Lawrence. “From starting work right out of high school to studying for different degrees in college, there were a lot of career options our students were exposed to.”

    Our team of hardworking people are advancing their careers within our dynamic company and building stronger communities.

  • HOPE of ECI Serves Abuse Survivors with Support from County Prestress

    HOPE of ECI Serves Abuse Survivors with Support from County Prestress

    HOPE of East Central Illinois empowers survivors of domestic assault to live independent, non-violent lives through the provision of housing, outreach, prevention, and education. HOPE was founded by a domestic abuse survivor who saw a need and drew in community partners to establish a small shelter in a two-bedroom apartment. Since then, it has grown to offer a 24-bed shelter, 10 transitional housing units, and a 24/7 crisis hotline. HOPE of ECI serves seven rural counties in central Illinois also providing education, group and individual counseling, referrals, and children’s services such as its therapeutic summer recreation program.

    Through the Sonnentag Foundation, County Prestress supports dozens of charitable organizations in four key service areas: Hunger & Homelessness Support, Service Member & Veteran Support, Sexual Abuse & Domestic Assault Services, and Mentoring & Skills Building.
