Nominate Your Neighbor: Mary Borland

Nearly thirty years ago, a Naperville mother started a drop-in gathering at the library for children with special needs to meet and socialize with each other.

Anybody from ages 18 and up with a mental illness is invited to the free dinner every Wednesday at 6pm.
