Dear Potential Sponsor,

Northern Illinois Recovery Community Organization (NIRCO) is a 501 (c) 3 organization that provides recovery best practices to reduce the stigma of substance use disorder and mental health. NIRCO operates on a four-pillar approach to services and resources including: Recovery Support Services, Recovery Education, Recovery Advocacy, and Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC). NIRCO’s recovery support services are provided by individuals with lived experiences in recovery management. NIRCO provides peer-led and peer-driven recovery support services that are built on recovery capital, thus creating a safer Lake County.  This national concept of peer-driven services has positioned NIRCO to be the first and only Recovery Community Organization (RCO) in Lake County.

NIRCO has hosted educational series, pop-up events and recovery support meetings while continuing to fight the opioid epidemic and the effects of COVID- 19 on our communities.  To date NIRCO has provided services to over 1100 individuals, families, and community partners with the help of volunteers, grants, and other donations since our inception in 2019.


On Saturday July 22, 2023, the Northern Illinois Recovery Community Organization will be hosting its 2nd Annual Gala Fundraiser at the Greenbelt Cultural Center in Waukegan, Illinois. This event will highlight the impact of our work while celebrating our champions, advocates, allies and ambassadors.
