JOLIET — Since 1987, the Will County Center for Community Concerns has worked to help the low-income residents of Will County.
The center invites the public to join it as it marks 25 years of service at an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 19 at the center, 304 N. Scott St.
As Will County’s community action agency, the center’s mission is to help residents get back on their feet and achieve self-sufficiency. In order to achieve that goal, the center provides many different programs and services necessary for households to achieve self-sufficiency.
Clients needing energy assistance; home repair or weatherization; educational classes in financial literacy or credit counseling; hoping to purchase their first home or finding themselves in need of emergency assistance will find help under its umbrella of services.
The center will present County Executive Larry Walsh with the Community Service Outstanding Leadership Award. This award was created to honor individuals who have helped the agency achieve its mission through their leadership and dedication to Will County and its residents
Attendance is open to the public, but an R.S.V.P. is requested by Sept. 13. Call 815-722-0722, Ext. 222.
