River Forest Township, established in 1917, directs and funds essential human services in our community. The Township serves our older adults, youth, those with mental health needs and developmental disabilities, and those with financial need. The Township Assessor, also part of the Township, assists River Forest's property taxpayers. Click here for details.

River Forest Township has strong partnerships with other local government entities and organizations. River Forest Township is distinct from the Village of River Forest, which focuses primarily on public safety (police and fire) and physical services such as public works, economic development, and snow removal.


We rely on citizen volunteers to advise on needs and funding priorities and to help with youth and senior services. Your gift of time, talent and service can make a real difference in the lives of neighbors in need. Residents call 708.366.2029 or
