The Village is served by 3 excellent grade school districts, which feed into Lockport Township High School. Four Fire Protection Districts provide unparalleled service for the residents. The Homer Township Library actively searches out and receives grants to benefit all residents, from youth through seniors.
In 1988, the Homer Township residents approved a referendum to purchase open space for recreational, environmental and educational uses. The Township maintains a number of athletic fields, as well as neighborhood parks.
Volunteer athletic associations provide organized activities for football, cheerleading, baseball, and soccer. A new privately owned roller rink further enhances children's choices of indoor soccer and roller hockey.
Homer Glen has an extensive network of resident volunteers who donate their time, effort and resources to the Village. Because the Village of Homer Glen does not levy a municipal property tax, volunteers are an integral part of maintaining additional services to the community. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the Village at 708-301-0632.
