On behalf of the staff and volunteers of our unit, I invite you to read our yearly Impact Report. It provides a summary of the programming accomplishments in our unit serving Henry, Mercer, Rock Island and Stark Counties.

Education is the foundation that builds strong communities, and we are pleased to be the resource that extends University of Illinois research to the local populations we serve.  As you can see from the report, Illinois Extension programs continue to be a powerful tool for expanding opportunities for individuals and families. We are proud of our work in educating people so they can make their homes, schools, farms, and small businesses safer, healthier, more productive, and more profitable. We serve a diverse audience with a broad range of education, connections and inspiration that help extend knowledge and change lives.
