New Year Brings New Locations for Social Service Agencies

The end of 2016 brought about the closing of the Community Resource Center, concluding a twenty-year history of providing a place for services provided to Woodridge families. Located at 8274 Janes Avenue, the facility was established in 1996 to provide social services, adult education classes, and after-school and summer activities for children.

As the Woodridge community has grown, so has the availability of space for programming. Expansions at the Woodridge Public Library and Woodridge Park District have resulted in improved accommodations now being available. This includes newly improved spaces in the Park District’s Athletic Recreation Center (ARC) and the Library’s recently renovated computer lab. The legacy of providing social services lives on in new locations, offering patrons an improved environment and equipment at their disposal.
