Cook County Civil Process Service is a proud and dedicated supporter of the following organizations. We encourage our friends, clients and visitors of this page to join us in their support.

Greater Chicago Food Depository

Nearly 500,000 people each year rely on emergency and supplemental food provided by the Greater Chicago Food Depository and its member network of 600 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. That figure represents a significant increase over previous studies conducted by the Food Depository and reflects census trends of poverty in Cook County. Growing numbers of Cook County residents are relying on agencies for stop-gap food assistance.

WAI (Water/Agriculture/Industry) Africa Foundation

Water is the source of all life. Today, 42% of Africans have no access to clean water and nearly 9,000 children die everyday due to problems arising from contaminated drinking water. Women and children have to walk for many miles and carry heavy buckets of contaminated water on their heads. During the dry season, women spend countless hours searching for sources of water. Only 4% of African water sources have been harnessed compared to nearly 40% in Asia.
