Residents gather for People in Need Forum

More than 40 social service organizations gathered Saturday at McHenry County College for the People in Need Forum. The half-day event brought together residents, as well as volunteers and staff members from human services, civic and faith-based organizations in an attempt to connect participants to community resources and information for those in need. Keynote speaker Jeff Gee, an internationally known motivational speak, opened the forum with a presentation on collaboration. Other highlights included 14 breakout sessions, five roundtable discussion and booths from local agencies and organizations. The People in Need Forum started in 2003 with 50 attendees and has now grown to more than 400. www.twitter.com.lsynett
