Last year, we asked you to contribute to our Giving Tuesday campaign to help us cover the expansion costs. Your generosity was astounding, and we are so thankful to now have an adequate facility and staff to be able to partner with 500 youth and adults in McHenry County to achieve our mission of ensuring empowerment and growth for youth and families.
This holiday season, we are asking you to BE THE CHANGE to help another dream become a reality. The adversities that our families continue to strive to overcome have inspired us to make a plan to launch a Peace Project in 2019 to offer even more holistic support and a place to heal and find strength.
A significant portion of this project is the construction and facilitation of a multipurpose Wellness Room to achieve the following goals:
1. Offer a private space for staff to conduct needs assessments, mental health screenings and to meet with clients regarding their personal goals and challenges;
2. Provide a private, calm space for therapists from any McHenry County agency to conduct therapy sessions; and
3. Create a Peace Corner where youth can go to be alone, take a break, practice self care and use strategies to regulate their emotions and resolve conflicts.
