History

Starved Rock Regional Center for Therapy and Child Development (SRRC) has been providing services in this area since 1947. That is when “LaSalle County Chapter for Crippled Children” was begun by Streator business leader Henry M. Light. The agency eventually changed its name to Easter Seals of LaSalle & Bureau Counties and then in 2015 to Starved Rock Regional Center for Therapy and Child Development. The services have also changed several times to better meet the needs of our community. However, our core purpose of improving the well-being of our communities’ children has never changed.

Mission

SRRC provides quality services to children with, and without, special needs and their families so that they have equal opportunity to live, learn, and play in their community.
