TASC Leadership

Representing the same vitality and diversity as the communities we serve, TASC’s 300+ employees across Illinois include clinical care coordinators, certified alcohol and drug counselors, community reentry specialists, and youth advocates. With varied backgrounds and interests, we share a common desire to make a positive difference through TASC’s mission.

Guiding the delivery of our mission, TASC’s leadership team includes our board of directors, executives, directors, and statewide program administrators.
