The mission of New Trier Township is to provide leadership, advocacy and resources to benefit the physical, mental and social well-being of Township residents.
The following principles guide the Board’s and Staff’s action as we work together to fulfill our mission:
The Township’s primary role is to identify and address the needs of our community.
Our efforts are to create new, energetic ideas and programs while maintaining existing programs which are relevant and effective.
Our intent is to support, given due diligence and fiscal accountability, programs providing services to our neighbors: including youth programs; senior citizen supports; aid to persons with disabilities; food, shelter and emergency relief for people in need.
We seek opportunities to meet community needs by providing assistance directly to individuals as well as indirectly, through third-party sources/providers.
The Township will pursue coalition-building with other community entities and advocate on behalf of Township residents.
We believe that people have the freedom to choose where they receive services and assistance, including those the Township provides and supports.
