Thirty seven human service agencies drew a crowd of more than 400 to Saturday's People In Need Forum at McHenry County College.
There are far more than 400 "people in need" in the County, of course. The 400 were just some of the people whose job it is to help them and the forum was a way to get the word to the pros about what sort of help is available and where to get it.
"We knew we'd have at least 100 more people this year (than last)," said Forum organizer Lori Belzer. "The need is there," she said. "That's why these people are here."
