Three years ago, a determined group of women started a new chapter of NOW in Will County that has grown into the second most active chapter in the state of Illinois.
Our chapter is currently working to create such educational events as the “Off To College Safety Fair,” a book club that focuses on teaching girls about strong women in all areas of society, and insuring that the Equal Rights Amendment finally becomes enshrined into our Constitution.
We are working with countless other organizations to create a better world for women in our country.
Will county's FAVORITE gay bar!

Guardian Angel Community Services (formerly, Guardian Angel Home), was founded in Joliet, Illinois in 1897 as an orphanage, run by the Sisters of Saint Francis of Mary Immaculate, to care for dependent and neglected children. In 1973, Guardian Angel Community Services became a licensed, child welfare agency and began focusing its efforts on addressing the increasingly complex problems of children and families. In August 2005, the Agency officially changed the name to reflect the wide array of services provided to the community. Guardian Angel Community Services expanded in the mid 1990’s to include an office in Morris, Illinois, which offers counseling, and medical and legal advocacy services to victims of domestic and sexual violence.
