People In Need Forum Information!


The 12 Annual People in Need Forum will be held on Saturday, January 30, 2016 from 8:00 am to 12:30

pm at the Leucht Conference Center at McHenry College at 8900 Route 14 in Crystal Lake. Nearly 60

local social service providers will be available to share information about their services in areas that

include food stamps, Medicaid and health care for the uninsured, mental health services, housing and

energy assistance, money management, senior and elder care needs, homelessness, transportation and

more. Attendees will receive The People In Need Resource Directory, updated annually and printed in

English and Spanish, which contains valuable information about services available to residents of

McHenry County. It will be available in print form and/or on flash drive. The Forum is open to staff and

volunteers from human service, civic and faith-based organizations, schools, law enforcement, health

care providers and caregivers and members of the general public who may be interested in connecting

with resources for themselves, families or friends. There will be workshops focusing on topics related to

health care, behavioral health and substance abuse, services for Veterans, transportation and housing.

The Forum is free, but registration is requested, especially to reserve your copy of the Directory. For

more information and to register, go to On the website, you will also
