Why are these services critical?

The neighborhood of Willowbrook Corner came into being as part of public housing relocation programs in the 1970s and 80s.  Located in unincorporated DuPage County, the neighborhood is not served by a municipality, and many families residing in the neighborhood live below the federal poverty level. The residents of Willowbrook Corner are not served by a municipality or a park district.  As a result, the children living in the Willowbrook Corner neighborhoods do not have the same opportunities as their fellow classmates.

To learn more about these critical services and what your support means to the Willowbrook Corner families, click here.


Where is Willowbrook Corner?

Located 6 miles south of Hinsdale this neighborhood is an area of unincorporated DuPage County that is geographically, politically and socially isolated.

Bounded by I-55, Rt. 83 and the Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve, the neighborhood is primarily composed of apartment and condominium complexes including Echo Lane Apartments, Hinsdale Lake Terrace Apartments, Hinsdale Point Condominiums and Waterfall Glenn Apartments, with single family homes in adjacent unincorporated subdivisions.
