FUSE Program

The McLean County’s Frequent User System Engagement (FUSE) program is designed to help the community break the cycle of homelessness and crisis among individuals struggling with complex behavioral health needs. These individuals are the highest users of emergency rooms, jails, shelters, and other crisis services and systems of care.
