More information from our Grand Master, M.:W.: Anthony R. Cracco:

To our Illinois Masonic Brethren and Widows:

I am writing on behalf of the Masons of Illinois to let you know we are concerned about you in this time of need. We understand you may live in an area that could be potentially impacted by the impending hurricane and would like to help if we can.

Illinois Masons through our Illinois Masonic Outreach Services program (e.g. IMOS) have programs to help with financial assistance in times when disaster strikes. Financial assistance is available through the IMOS program in certain emergency situations. The amount given is determined on a "case by case" basis, dependent on the type of disaster and individual needs. Types of emergency financial assistance available (but not limited to) include:

* Assistance with paying for food/other basic needs (for those who are without)
* Paying for the cost of a hotel stay (should a member have a loss of home/shelter)
* Assistance with paying insurance deductibles
* Assistance with the cost of repairs to a primary residence

Talia J. Dean is our IMOS Director and can be reached at: (217)529-8900 ext. 212 or by email at:

[email protected].

Please feel free to contact her for assistance and we will do all we can to help.

I know the Grand Lodge Officers along with all Masons in Illinois wish you the best and sincerely hope you and your loved ones stay safe and secure.

We look forward to helping wherever and however we can. Please call to inquire into the help available to you.

Fraternally and sincerely,

Anthony R. Cracco
Grand Master

From our esteemed M.:W.: Grand Master, Anthony R. Cracco:

Brethren,

The Board of Managers for the Illinois Masonic Children's Assistance Program (IMCAP) has announced that efforts are underway toward developing our Grand Lodge's new children’s outreach program. As with any new endeavor, there is much work to be done in preparation for the programs and services that will be offered by IMCAP.

Currently, the Board of Managers (BOM) is structuring the IMCAP mission statement, which will serve as a basic outline for the programs that will be offered in the future. During its first meeting, the BOM discussed creative ways to make a difference in children’s’ lives through partnering with Lodges and other statewide and community-based organizations. The BOM is meeting regularly with the goal of launching the new program in January 2018.

All of the members of the BOM and its staff share a commitment to children and their families, especially those with a Masonic connection. They are focused on meeting the expectations of brother Masons throughout the state, as well as those of our elected and appointed Grand Lodge officers who have entrusted them with this exciting opportunity.
More information will be forthcoming and widely shared as soon as possible.

Fraternally and Sincerely,

Anthony R. Cracco
Grand Master

“That I will aid and assist all worthy, distressed brother Master Masons, their widows, and orphans”

The Illinois Masonic Outreach Services (or IMOS) helps fellow Master Masons and their families through the toughest of times. “The programs’ mission is to bridge the gap between community resources and member needs to promote physical, social, financial, and personal enrichment to enhance the quality of life for our membership.”

The IMOS program was established in 2008 in response to the needs of the membership. In the past, the Grand Lodge operated a nursing home facility in Sullivan, Illinois which worked very well in its day. However, with the changing times, we as a fraternity are changing with them and are working more efficiently within our charitable programs to provide improved and better services. Instead of serving a few individuals, in one specific area, IMOS can now assist members throughout the state of Illinois – and even those who reside out of state. In many cases, this allows members to remain in their own home, near family and loved ones. It also allows us to assist members with a variety of needs; not just the level of care a nursing home can provide. This cost effective approach enables IMOS funds to serve more Illinois Masons – and their families. We have included four major program components on this website: Financial Assistance; Information, Advocacy, and Referral Assistance; Widow Support; and Volunteer Services.

For more information regarding the IMOS program please contact:
