United Way of McHenry County supports human service
programs designed to address the needs of McHenry County
residents. For several years, this support has included
creation of an updated version of the Human Resource
Directory.
This Directory is designed to enhance existing sources of
information, however it cannot possibly include every human
service provider in McHenry County. Inclusion or exclusion of
a resource in this Directory implies neither endorsement nor
lack of endorsement.
This 2008-2009 edition has been completely updated and
reorganized, and the information presented is as accurate as
possible. Agency and Organization information frequently
change and therefore total accuracy cannot be guaranteed.
If you need additional copies of the Directory, please contact
Family Service & Community Mental Health Center for
McHenry County at 815-385-6400.
Again, thank you to United Way of McHenry County without
whose support this publication would not be possible.
