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.

2021 Hero Helps Community Summit set for Oct. 15

The stage is set for the 10th anniversary of the Hero Helps Community Forum to be held from 7:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. on Friday, October 15 at the Romeoville Athletic and Events Center.

"The COVID-19 pandemic has brought enormous challenges to treating people dealing with an opioid use disorder,” said Dr. Kathleen Burke with the Office of Substance Use Initiatives, under the office of the Will County Executive. “The pandemic has definitely changed access to treatment and continuing support groups, and the impact of social distancing and economic uncertainty has attributed to the increase in opioid use in our county.”

Speakers will include Dr. Rebecca Baker from the National Institute of Health who will speak about the HEAL initiative, Helping End Long-term Addiction, and David Jones, director of the Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (SUPR) at the Illinois Department of Human Services, who will address the challenges of accessing care and the need to expand available services.

The event will also include a panel discussion about Community Collaboration with members of the Will County MAPP (Mobilizing Action through Planning and Partnerships) which will include a question-and-answer session.

A resource fair with 40 vendors from behavioral health, medical, support groups and other related businesses with be part of the event. Naloxone training and overdose education will be held from 11:30 a.m. til 12:30 p.m.
