REMINDER: JANUARY 23 - Change of Plans!

This month, we are inviting Coalition members to attend the Right Now in Lake County presentation instead of our regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, January 23.  The event is hosted by the Lake County Community Foundation, which has generously extended an invitation to the Lake County YES Coalition to attend.

Date: Tuesday, January 23, 2018
Time: 7:45 am - 10:00 am 
Location: Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital - Hughes Conference Center, 1000 Westmoreland Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045

The Lake County Community Foundation welcomes nationally renowned researcher, University of Washington Public Affairs professor and Brookings Institution nonresident fellow DR. SCOTT W. ALLARD to discuss his 2017 book Places in Need: The Changing Geography of Poverty.

For a decade, Dr. Allard has researched and written extensively about the suburbanization of poverty, focusing on Lake County, Illinois as a national case study. A panel of local leaders will discuss issues at the intersection of poverty and place. Join us to gain valuable information to guide your strategic community investment and connect with others dedicated to building a better Lake County through philanthropy and civic engagement.

Space is limited, so we encourage you to register by the registration deadline of January 16.  More information is available here:
