  • Elk Grove Village Cares Program (“EGV Cares”)”: This community-based strategy is focused on: tackling opioid addiction; helping those in need; and making Elk Grove Village a stronger, safer and healthier community. EGV Cares aims to make it easier for those suffering from addiction to access and remain in treatment, to strengthen the community support network, to eradicate the stigma of opioid addiction and to save lives by placing Narcan, and overdose-reversing medication, in public.
  • Elk Grove Village Police Drug Education : The Elk Grove Village Police Department Crime Prevention Unit is committed to establishing positive community relations through development, implementation, and perpetuation of comprehensive proactive crime prevention programs. Chief among the unit’s drug education efforts is a partnership with the DARE America program to provide drug resistance education to middle school students. The curriculum puts a strong emphasis on being responsible and safe, as well as good decision-making, critical thinking, and understanding risks and consequences.
  • Kenneth Young Youth Center (“KYC”): KYC Clin­i­cal Sub­stance Use Pre­ven­tion and Recov­ery Services pro­vide clin­i­cal treat­ment inter­ven­tions to peo­ple strug­gling with a wide range of sub­stance use prob­lems and dis­or­ders. The KYC Com­mu­ni­ty Col­lab­o­ra­tion and Pub­lic Resource Devel­op­ment Team pro­motes healthy choic­es for youth through edu­ca­tion and aware­ness of health issues, com­mu­ni­ty col­lab­o­ra­tion and evi­dence-based pro­grams that sup­port sub­stance abuse prevention.

“The Village’s community events and outreach are the lifeblood of our community–they keep neighbors connected to each other and give expression to our common values. It is through these connections and values that we affirm our commitment to supporting the health of our neighborhoods and future,” said Elk Grove Village Mayor Craig B. Johnson . “I want to thank 4Front for their generous donation, which will help us expand the reach of our village’s life-changing initiatives while strengthening our community for the better.”

“4Front is honored to step forward and support Mayor Johnson’s vision for a stronger, more compassionate community,” said 4Front Director of Operations Joe Epperson . “Community programs like these make a positive impact on communities by fundamentally changing the lives of individuals and their families for the better. Taking a ‘paying it forward’ approach has always been part of our culture and DNA at 4Front, and we look forward to continuing to make a meaningful impact in the vibrant communities we serve across the country.”
