Grundy County Community Resource Directory

With the help of BHA members and local providers, a revised and enlarged Grundy County Resource Directory has been developed for Grundy County.  The directory is organized by topic section (e.g. education, substance use disorder, etc.) and is indexed.

The Directory is a project under Chestnut Health Systems’ Substance Abuse Prevention Services grant under Illinois Department of Human Services Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery.

Because directories become outdated quickly, the process of revisions and corrections is taking place immediately.  To report or suggest changes, please email the new or corrected information to [email protected]
