The Center of Concern is a not-for-profit agency offering social services to individuals living in the northwest Chicago area.
Our primary objectives are to assist those in crisis and follow up with supportive services, and to provide support for the homebound elderly and disabled to help them retain their independence.
Financial support for The Center of Concern comes from individuals, local organizations and businesses as well as the United Way, the Park Ridge Community Fund, the city of Des Plaines, Maine Township, and many corporations and charitable foundations. Program support also includes grants from Cook County, the Illinois Department of Human Services and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
On July 5, 2011 John McNabola was named as the Executive Director of The Center.
The Center of Concern employs 11 professional and clerical staff serving the elderly and homebound. They are assisted by over 200 dedicated volunteers. In a typical year, more than 15,000 individuals contact The Center for assistance.
The many services provided by The Center of Concern make a real difference in the quality of life for many in the community and are furnished without regard to age, sex, disability, race, national origin or financial status. Our services are offered without charge or at nominal cost.
