Are you familiar with Pioneer Center for Human Services? Do you know what it really does or anything about the important segment of McHenry County population that it serves? For information visit www.pioneercenter.org
Perhaps you know an individual who receives services at Pioneer Center. Or one who would benefit from services but who currently does not receive them.
Two informational meetings about Pioneer Center’s need for additional funding to serve our County’s developmentally disabled persons will be conducted on January 30 at 4031 Dayton Street, McHenry. Get directions at www.mapquest.com
Pioneer Center is asking County leaders and concerned citizens to be participants in this effort. The goal is to initiate a 377 Board, a tax levy that could bring in $6.5 million to provide new services.
On Wednesday, January 30, 2008, two meetings will be held; the earlier one will be at 2:00PM and the later one will be at 6:00PM.
Following these informational meetings Pioneer Center will make a presentation at the McHenry County Health and Human Services Committee on February 8, 2008 at 8:15 a.m. This also is a public meeting. The Committee will be asked to request the County Board to vote.
If you are interested in attending one of the meeting listed above, R.S.V.P. to Tracy Champion at 815.759.7112
