Today's program was presented by Barb Swanson from the Pioneer Center. Barb discussed the three programs offered by Pioneer Center; Developmental Disability Services, Behavioral Health Services and Homeless Services. She expanded greatly on the last program which supports the homeless community in McHenry County. In addition to the PADS programs offered by local churches throughout the County, which is sponsored by Pioneer Center, their facility located in Woodstock provides a comfortable bed and other housing necessities for those who are need of this temporary service. Barb stated that a donation of $2,500 allows organizations or individuals to "adopt a bed" for one year.
