HOMER GLEN, IL — During these difficult times, many of us are feeling lonely and isolated, including senior citizens in nursing homes or assisted living facilities. The village of Homer Glen is encouraging residents to create art and cards with messages of hope, love and encouragement for the senior citizen residents of Marian Village and Victorian Village.

The village said both Marian Village and Victorian Village have approved the program and are grateful to the residents of Homer Glen.
