About the organization
In order to be eligible for EFE services, an individual must be a person with a disability and have an issue that arises in Illinois.
Callers seeking assistance from EFE should contact EFE at (800) 537-2632.
Callers will be asked to provide some demographic information, a summary of their specific request for services, and other intake related questions. Each request for service is subsequently discussed with EFE's legal team, which meets once per week, to determine if EFE is able to provide the request for services or assist the caller in some other way. If EFE is unable to assist the caller, the caller will be provided with information and referrals to other appropriate organizations.
