From Cook County Public Health and Human Services and Cook County YMCA - June 9, 2023

Cook County Public Health and Human Services, in collaboration with the Cook County YMCA, is offering 400 free day passes to local youth through the Rural Communities Opioid Response Program (RCORP) grant. This grant is a consortium partnership that includes several other local and regional service providers, each of our local schools, and Cook County Higher Ed.

The grant focuses on substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery. Through our prevention work, providing local youth with safe and accessible options to spend their summer days is an important piece to promoting protective factors that help prevent and reduce substance use.

This program is open to all local Cook County youth up to age 18 beginning Monday, June 12th. Any youth younger than the age of 10 will need to be accompanied by an adult, per the policy of the YMCA. There is no paperwork to complete, just check in at the front desk! Contact the YMCA for more information about age policies and activity schedules.

This is a summer program that is available while supplies last. If you have questions about this program, please contact Andrea Orest at Cook County Public Health via phone at 218-220-5536 or email at [email protected].
