The purpose of the Gender Responsive Committee is to promote the importance and need of female responsive programming throughout detention and probation. The committee is utilized as a resource for Counties which are in the initial planning stages of Female responsive programming, as well as those Counties which are considered veterans in working with the female population. The goal is to provide counties dialogue and training to continue to highlight the needs of the female population and increase services throughout the State of Illinois. We want to encourage each county to review their current programming for females and provide a female responsive approach to their work.
