“What impresses me the most is seeing how we will be able to make such a big difference in the quality of people’s lives,” says Hillan.

More than 50% of the private apartments that will be available at Heritage Woods of Freeport already have been reserved.

“We have older adults from throughout Stephenson County who will be moving into the community as well as older adults from outside our area who are moving in to be close to family,” says Hillan.
