Izi zikufanana ndi 1,698,613 mwa anthu 12,551,822 omwe amafotokoza kuchuluka kwa ndalama zomwe amapeza pansi pa umphawi mchaka chatha. Kwa anthu ambiri aku Illinois omwe akukumana ndi umphawi, akukumana ndi zochitika zowononga moyo monga kuthamangitsidwa, nkhanza zapakhomo, komanso zopindulitsa pagulu, kulipira ntchito zamalamulo izi nthawi zambiri sikutheka. Ndiko komwe Prairie State imabwera.

Ogwira ntchito athu odzipereka ndi odzipereka amagwira ntchito limodzi kuti awonjezere mwayi wopeza chilungamo kwa anthu omwe akukumana ndi umphawi. Maloya athu amayang'ana kugwiritsa ntchito malamulo m'njira zopangira komanso kutsutsa zamalamulo tsiku ndi tsiku zomwe nthawi zambiri zasiya anthu amdera lathu omwe ali pachiwopsezo chopanda chiyembekezo.

Thandizo lazamalamulo ndi imodzi mwa njira zodzitetezera ku kusowa pokhala, kotero chimodzi mwa zinthu zofunika kwambiri ku Prairie State pakali pano ndikupereka thandizo kwa anthu omwe akukumana ndi kutaya nyumba zawo.

Kuyambira pa Okutobala 1, 2021, mpaka Januware 24, 2022, Prairie State idatseka milandu 2,049 yokhudza kuthamangitsidwa ndi zina zokhudzana ndi nyumba zobwereketsa. Mwa milanduyi, tidamaliza 427 ndi oyimira pazokambirana, makhothi, kapena pamilandu ya apilo oyang'anira ndi 83% kupeza zotsatira zabwino. Milandu 356 inaphatikizapo akuluakulu 415 ndi ana 397 m'maboma 22 osiyanasiyana, kuphatikizapo madera athu akumidzi.

Maloya athu ndi otiyimira akudziwa okha momwe nyumba, kapena kusowa kwake, kumakhudzira mbali iliyonse ya moyo wa munthu - kuyambira maphunziro a mwana, kupeza chakudya chatsopano, kufunikira kwa chitetezo ndi pogona. Kafukufuku akuwonetsa kuti kukhala ndi loya akakumana ndi kuthamangitsidwa kumathandizira kwambiri mwayi wopeza zotsatira zabwino kukhothi.

Mu kafukufuku wa 2018 wochokera kwa Stout Risius Ross (Stout), kampani yopereka upangiri yomwe ili ndi ukatswiri wokhudza nkhani zosiyanasiyana zazachuma, kuphatikiza nkhani kapena zokhudzana ndi mwayi wopeza chilungamo komanso zosowa za anthu omwe amapeza ndalama zochepa, 22% yokha ya omwe ali ndi lendi. anapewa kusamuka poyesa kudziimira okha. Komabe, mosiyana, 95% ya obwereketsa adapewa kusamutsidwa atathandizidwa ndi loya pakuthamangitsa.

Pulojekiti ya Restore, Reinvest, and Renew (R3) ndi ntchito yoyimira maloya ku Prairie State yomwe imaphatikiza chidziwitso ndi luso la oyimira anthu ammudzi ndi maloya kuti athandize kuthetsa nkhani zomwe zadziwika m'madera omwe anthu anali osaloledwa, ndipo amachita izi m'njira yopatsa mphamvu atsogoleri amderalo. ndi magulu kuti apite ku kusintha kosatha ndi kufanana kwa mafuko. Prairie State imagwira ntchito limodzi ndi mabungwe ammudzi, mipingo, ndi magulu kuti apereke osati thandizo lalamulo ndi maphunziro okha, koma kupereka luso ndi chidziwitso chothandizira kusintha kosatha.

Pofuna kuphunzitsa maloya ndi akuluakulu a makhoti za nkhani zomwe anthu osauka akukumana nazo m’khoti, Woimira Boma la Prairie ndi Wogwirizanitsa Ntchito ya R3 Kira Devin anagwira ntchito limodzi ndi ogwira ntchito kuti akonzekere, kugwirizanitsa, ndi kuyendetsa “Navigating the Courts. Wekha" kuyerekezera ndi oweruza a Winnebago County ndi antchito.

Kuyerekezerako kunayika otenga nawo gawo paudindo wa mayi wopeza ndalama zochepa omwe akukumana ndi kuthamangitsidwa chifukwa chosalipira lendi ndikuyesera kupeza phindu la anthu, thandizo lazamalamulo, thandizo la lendi, ndi njira yodutsa kukhoti. Pulogalamuyi ikuwonetsa zovuta zomwe ozemba omwe sakuyimilira amapeza thandizo pomwe akulimbana ndi machitidwe omwe alipo, zotchinga, ndi kusayeruzika. Kuwunika kochokera pamwambowu kunawonetsa kuti oweruza ndi ogwira ntchito m'mabwalo amilandu adapeza kuti kayesedweko kothandiza komanso kuti adakulitsa chidziwitso chawo cha machitidwe omwe anthu akugwira nawo ntchito.

"Tikukhulupirira kuti tsankho komanso kusalingana kwamitundu pamwambowu zidalimbikitsa oweruza ndi ogwira ntchito m'makhothi kuti aganizire zomwe akuchita tsiku ndi tsiku kuti apange dongosolo lolungama," adatero Devin. "Chochitikachi chikukhudzana mwachindunji ndi anthu okhalamo, omwe ndi akuda mosagwirizana, amwenye, ndi amitundu, ndipo amayang'anizana ndi tsankho lodziwika bwino pamilandu yachilungamo ndipo nthawi zambiri sayimilira kukhothi chifukwa maloya satsimikizika pamilandu yachiwembu. Pophunzitsa ogwira ntchito m’makhoti ndi oweruza za moyo weniweni amene anthu opanda woimira anzawo akukumana nawo komanso kuwongolera luso la nzika za R3, tikukulitsa chidaliro m’malamulo.”

Ngakhale tikukumana ndi zovuta zazikulu, tikukhudzidwa kwambiri ndi moyo wamakasitomala athu powonekera tsiku lililonse ndikupeza njira zothetsera mavuto amakasitomala athu, ndipo nthawi zina kusintha machitidwe opanda ungwiro panthawiyi. Pamene umphawi ukuwonjezeka m'dera lathu lonse lautumiki, tikulimbana kwambiri kuposa kale lonse kuti tipeze chilungamo ndi kubwezeretsa chiyembekezo kwa makasitomala athu.
