What is LIC/ECN?

The Local Interagency Council (LIC) & Early Childhood Network (ECN) of McHenry County is a community-based collaboration led by Options & Advocacy for McHenry County committed to enhancing a high-quality, well-coordinated, easily-accessible system of services and supports that promote the positive growth and development of expecting parents and families with children from birth to age five.
