Senator Lightford is continuing to fight for human services in the 4th senate district and across the state as we try to find a responsible solution to the state's budget problems. She recently spoke on the importance of facilities such as the Way Back Inn and Grateful House Veteran Housing, which recently received a $10,000 grant from the Home Depot Foundation.

These exemplary facilities offer help and hope to veterans and other people in need of dependence recovery in communities, such as Oak Park, Melrose Park, Maywood, Chicago and Forest Park.
