MAIN DEMPSTER MILE: In 2014, over 60 small businesses located in Southeast Evanston signed a petition in support of investigating the creation of a Special Service Area for the commercial districts that currently make up the Chicago/Dempster business district and the Main Street business district. A Special Service Area (SSA) is defined by Illinois State Statute as a contiguous area within a municipality or county in which special services are provided in addition to those services provided generally throughout the municipality or county. Special services include things like landscaping, advertising, public art, and extra garbage collections. The special services are paid from revenues collected from taxes levied or imposed upon property within that area.

Our professional staff includes certified prevention specialists, certified substance abuse counselors, licensed clinical social workers, licensed clinical professional counselors, physicians, nurses and family therapists.

Treatment scholarships are available for individuals and families who are unable to pay the full cost of treatment.

This free event features art from an abundance of countries, family crafts activities, international cuisine, and live music and dance performances. Attendees will enjoy continuous performances throughout the weekend at two venues.
