Welcome to Lawrence Hall Youth Services
Since 1865, Lawrence Hall Youth Services has been delivering quality care to children and their families throughout the metropolitan Chicago area, many of whom have experienced significant traumas in their lives. The agency has not only sustained itself for the duration, but it has also redefined how youth are educated and treated.
Lawrence Hall continues to excel and has earned its place as a statewide leader in highly-effective, evidence-based, and innovative therapeutic treatment. The agency’s unique continuum of care –which promotes overall well-being– combined with an innnovative and expert staff, has positioned Lawrence Hall to meet the changing and complex needs of children and families for the next 150 years.
Youth and families find their voices while overcoming past trauma at Lawrence Hall. We offer a continuum of care, encompassing clinical services, and educational support through the:
Therapeutic Day School Program;
Foster Care Program;
Residential Treatment Program; and the
Older Adolescent Program.
Throughout all of Lawrence Hall’s programs, youth benefit from behavioral healthcare, health and wellness services, therapeutic recreation, art and music therapy, civic engagement, balanced and restorative justice, job readiness and workforce development, as well as spiritual development and LGBT supportive services. The seamless transition between levels of care within each program and across programs equips our youth with the tools and skills they need to set them on the path toward becoming proud, productive participants in society.
