Welcome to POC

Our organization is called Partners for Our Communities (POC) because that is what we are: schools and churches, cities and townships, libraries and individuals along with Northwest Community Hospital coming together as partners to make our communities stronger. We partner together to build stronger and healthier communities in Palatine, Hoffman Estates and Rolling Meadows by strengthening families.

Since 1999, Partners for Our Communities (POC) has welcomed and introduced families and individuals in need to the Palatine community. The POC connects people with local resources and provides a pathway for their integration and success. We are dedicated to helping people help themselves through a variety of programs and services. In early 2015 the POC board of directors voted to share its programs with neighboring communities.
