People In Need Forum

The public is invited to register to learn about the abundance of resources and support for themselves and for others at the annual People in Need Forum each January at MCC. Exhibitors showcase important community resources available to help those in need and present workshops to address topics such as immigration, senior issues, caregiver resources, LGBTQ, substance abuse and addictions, and homelessness. The event is free and open to the public. Pre-registration is encouraged.

The forum is an excellent resource for human service agencies, faith-based organizations, civic group members, law enforcement, elected officials, school personnel, individuals interested in volunteer opportunities, or those seeking assistance. 

Attendees receive a handout and flash drive with a community resource directory, which is the only one of its kind in the Chicago area.
