How We Give Hope

We believe that spending one on one quality time with children, teens, and young adults who are in emotional distress can help save their life.  By teaching them coping skills, talking about it, and validating their feelings, we find that we are able to build a trusting relationship with them, and
HELP them get through the pain they feel today
ENCOURAGE them by setting attainable goals, assisting them to REACH those goals, and
OVERCOME the feeling of no longer wanting to live. 
We instill in them that they're created on purpose and for a purpose and that contrary to their beliefs, they are very much needed in this world.  
We offer resources for the youth and their families to ensure that they are getting professional mental health treatment. 
We offer children, teen, and young adult activity outings to keep these kids focused and engaged
We offer referrals to ongoing support groups for both the youth and their families through one of our amazing community partners -NAMI Northern Illinois. (Click the NAMI icon for available support group information)
