SPERO FAMILY SERVICES!
Hope, Help and Healing for a Brighter Tomorrow
Spero, which means “I hope” from the Latin proverb “while I breathe, I hope”, truly reflects the hope, help, and healing we provide to individuals and families throughout Southern Illinois. We have a proud and strong tradition and affiliation with the United Methodist Church that we cherish and honor. Although we spent the majority of our one hundred plus year history exclusively as a children’s home we also have grown to offer other valuable services throughout the Southern Illinois region.
“Although Spero Family Services is a faith-based agency, programs are open and available to anyone fitting the service criteria without discrimination and regardless of faith or denominational background.”
