Free Community Education Seminar on the Impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences – November 28

What we experience shapes who we are. There is a growing body of evidence suggesting adverse experiences in childhood impact our physical, mental, and social health as adults. In this presentation, we will look at how these experiences impact us as individuals, parents and professionals. We will also look at how we can help our children and others to heal and grow from adversity.

This free event will take place on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM and is sponsored by Maine Township’s MaineStay Youth & Family Services, Chicago Behavioral Hospital, and The Harbour. It is appropriate for community members and professionals and includes 1.5 free CEUs for social workers, professional counselors, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and nurses. Check in will be from 6:30-7:00 PM. Advance registration is requested as seating for this event is limited.

Attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items (canned fruit, tuna, and ravioli are especially needed) to donate to the Maine Township Food Pantry.

Township Responds to Landings Fire

Our hearts go out to all the victims of the fire that tragically struck the Landings this weekend and particularly to the friends and family of the deceased. Numerous fire departments from all over the northwest and Northern suburbs came to the aid of the North-Maine Fire Department to battle the blaze. We thank each and every one of them as well as all CERT teams, OEM, Highway Department, and the Salvation Army.

Maine Township is providing Landings residents effected by the fire with food boxes; personal toiletries, socks, etc.; shelter assistance; and supplemental assistance as we band together to try to assist our residents. Please stop by the Maine Township Town Hall at 1700 Ballard Road in Park Ridge between the hours of 9-5 Monday-Friday and inquire at the General Assistance entrance or in the garage.

We also have a donation box inside the Maine Township Town Hall for (preferably) new clothing items, toiletries, white goods, blankets, etc. which will be given to victims of the Landings fire. Donations can also be sent through a GoFundMe page.

Please call 847-297-2510 with any additional questions.
