U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-16th) toured the Rosecrance Ware Center Friday, December 8, to view the relocated facility and the increase in space for clients, staff and programs.
Rosecrance Ware Center Administrator Anne Fridh and President/CEO Philip Eaton showed Kinzinger around the new 42,000-square-foot facility, which has a modern design with a spacious lobby and includes staff offices, group meeting rooms, a pharmacy, and the Resource Recovery Center.
Kinzinger, Eaton and Fridh spoke about the need for mental health services, specifically among the veteran population throughout Northern Illinois.
Later that night, Kinzinger held a “Christmas Benefit for Veterans of Camouflage and Combat” at the Prairie Street Brewhouse in support of the Rosecrance Foundation.
Kinzinger, 36, is a former U.S. Air Force pilot who was re-elected in November 2014 to represent Illinois’ 16th District in the U.S. House of Representatives.
