The Kankakee-Iroquois Help Information Network (Kan-I Help) is a community information system designed to connect residents of Kankakee and Iroquois Counties with government agencies, human services, and other non-profit organizations. Kan-I Help is an initiative of the Community Foundation of Kankakee River Valley.
Previously, the Kan-I Help Network provided information regarding community resources through the printed Kan-I Help Human Services Directory. Special editions were published to meet unique information needs and a Family Caregiver directory was available for those caring for elderly family members and for grandparents raising grandchildren.
In addition to Kan-I Help, the Community Foundation of Kankakee River Valley is a vehicle for charitable giving that builds overtime, substantial endowment funds for the community.
