One of the greatest resources available to the residents of McHenry County, is the 2-1-1 service. You can dial 211 from any wireless or land line phone to get connected with a referral agent that can direct you to the agency that provides services that you are looking for.

2-1-1 Illinois

If you are having difficulties reaching someone by dialing 211, dial 1-888-865-9903 instead for the same information. Be sure to tell the operator that you could not get through via 211 so that they can follow up on the problem. 2-1-1 directory is also available here: 2-1-1 Directory of Services

In addition to 2-1-1, your city, village or township may be able to assist you after a disaster. Agency Directory on this website has contact information for local municipalities and other entities that you may find helpful.
