DayOne and PACT have Merged

The Board of Directors of both DayOne Network and PACT, Inc. are pleased to announce that as of January 1, 2016 the two organizations have merged together as one. The new organization will be known as DayOne PACT.

DayOne PACT is committed to assisting people of all ages with disabilities to live supported, productive, and meaningful lives.

Providing service coordination to children and adults with developmental disabilities, and their families, DayOne PACT will now provide services throughout DuPage, Kendall, and Kane counties, and in addition the Hanover Township of Cook County.

It is important to know that programs and services will not change. While DayOne PACT will now have two locations, the programs and services offered will have no disruptions or changes in the way that they operate.

While there will be changes over the next few weeks such as moving to a single website and a coordination of some of the administrative systems, please contact each location depending upon where you are seeking service. Thank you for your patience during our transition.

History and DayOne Network Background

DayOneNetwork was incorporated in 1989 through the effort of community leaders in Kane and Kendall Counties and Hanover Township of Cook County. DayOneNetwork was founded in order to facilitate and better coordinate a wide variety of services to individuals who have disabilities.

DayOneNetwork is a private, nonprofit, community based agency providing service coordination and advocacy services to children and adults with developmental delays and/or disabilities of all ages. The agency "guides individuals and their families through the maze of community services to access needed supports and services". Our ultimate goal is to connect people who need services with those individuals or agencies that provide them.

The mission of DayOne Network is to find solutions for children and adults with developmental delays and/or disabilities in Kane and Kendall Counties and Hanover Township of Cook County and to make the connections for necessary services and supports. This mission is accomplished through independent service coordination activities:

  • Screening
  • Eligibility Determination
  • Assessment and Evaluation
  • Service Plan Development
  • Service Arrangement and Linkage
  • Follow Up
  • Advocacy and Community Education
  • Information and Referral

The agency currently provides:

Child and Family Connections

Pre-Admission Screening
Pre-Admission screening to determine eligibility, secure provider agencies, and obtain funding.

Bogard Individual Service Coordination

Individual Services and Support Advocacy

  • Act as advocates for the individual to ensure that the service plan is consistent with the strengths, needs and choices of the individual
