What We’re Doing To Keep Our Seniors, Staff and Volunteers Safe
The safety of our seniors, staff and volunteers are our top priority. As such, we are following the direction of the Centers For Disease Control (CDC), the Illinois Department On Aging (IDOA) and other agencies in order to do everything we can to ensure the safety of all those around us.
This page will be updated as new information becomes available.
