Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant Will County Executive

I am honored to serve as your Will County Executive. As a lifelong resident of this great county, I have witnessed many changes as we have evolved from an ag-community to a major hub in the global distribution market.  I am dedicated to building upon this status but I am equally dedicated to maintaining the quality of life for the nearly 700,000 residents and thousands of businesses and organizations that call Will County home. 

Please explore our website which is filled with important information about services and departments within the County Executive office as well as connections to other county officials’ websites.

Will County is diverse, vibrant, and filled with hard-working people. We have room to grow and we look forward to a great future.

Will County Veterans’ Assistance Commission to partner with Community Service Council of Northern Will County

Officials from the Will County Veterans’ Assistance Commission (VAC) and the Community Service Council of Northern Will County (CSC) are proud to announce a new partnership that will benefit veterans living in the Northern portion of Will County. This partnership will enable these two agencies to offer “one stop” services for their clients in a convenient location.

“We are grateful to Bob Kalnicky of the CSC for offering space in their agency’s newly expanded offices to serve our veterans,” said Will County Executive Larry Walsh. “This is a great example of bringing government services to the people and how agencies in Will County work together to help all of our residents. I am proud of Kristi McNichol, superintendent of the VAC, for her creative thinking to expand services for our veterans.”

Initially, the VAC will offer services for veterans from noon until 7:00 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month in the CSC offices located at 440 Quadrangle Drive, Suite C, in Bolingbrook. The first day of this service will be January 16, 2019. Both Kalnicky and McNichol said they plan to expand services times based upon response from their clients.

Services offered by the VAC will include assistance accessing service connected compensation, widow’s pension, and other aid and attendance information. The agency will also help veterans apply for benefits for education and job training from local, state, and federal programs. The CSC offers counseling for individuals and family, housing and financial, as well as employer assistance programs, and court-ordered programs and classes such as DUI evaluations. The CSC recently entered into a partnership with the Spanish Community Center in Joliet to expand services to the Spanish-speaking population in Will County.

“We are happy to share our offices with the VAC,” said Kalnicky. “We already offer housing
and financial assistance to veterans in our area. This partnership will enable us to offer more services specific to veterans who live in Northern Will County.”

“As a veteran myself, I had difficulty learning about the benefits available to me,” said McNichol. “I am happy to partner with Bob and the CSC to ensure our veterans know about the services available to them through both agencies.”

For more information about VAC services, call (815) 740-8389. For information about CSC services, call (815) 886-5000.
