General Assistance is a welfare program which provides monthly financial assistance to persons who are not eligible for any other State or Federal assistance programs, and who do not have adequate income or resources to provide for their own basic needs.
The Township has a lending closet of used medical equipment, that is available for use by Township residents. Common items that are available are: Walkers, Wheel chairs, Crutches, Commodes, Lift Recliners, Scooters, Shower Seats, Etc.
The Hampshire Township recognized that the community was lacking a gathering place available to its residents. In 2012, the Township built a community building that also houses its administration offices. The primary purpose of the building is for the public, and we have kept our rates reasonable for that reason.
Transportation is available to seniors over the age of 60 and disabled individuals to medical appointments. The township has scheduled routes to Elgin, St. Charles, Huntley, Sycamore and Marengo.
