A Brief Story About Arrowleaf

Arrowleaf has been supporting individuals and families in Southern Illinois for decades. When we started in 1974, our work focused on evaluation, planning, and the provision of mental health education and services. Today, we do so much more.

In 2020, it was time for our name and brand to reflect our growth, the people we serve, our community impact, and the full scope of our work. While our name changed to Arrowleaf, we remain committed to building well-being for Southern Illinoisans throughout their lives so they can weather life’s storms, reach their full potential, and help our communities thrive.

We are constantly innovating our approach to respond to the people and communities we serve. This fiscal year, Union County Counseling Services, Inc. merged with us resulting in additional grants offerings, increased employment opportunities, and a larger physical footprint.

Today, we’ve grown to offer more than 25 programs across three areas essential to well-being and strong communities, employ more than 200 individuals in the community, operate 21 locations in 6 counties, enroll nearly 4,000 clients, and directly impact approximately 10,000 individuals. Our economic impact in Southern Illinois was over $18 million this year, and we’re on track for further growth next year.

Everything we do is focused on advancing our mission to help all Southern Illinoisans reach their full potential. We work hard to provide individuals with the support, resources, and opportunities they need to overcome the challenges that come up at points in every life so they can build well-being, make our communities more vibrant, and build economic prosperity that benefits everyone.
