Emergency Group Homes
Assisting Sick and Abused Children
Arlington Heights, IL
Shelter’s mission is to help and protect children who are abused, neglected, or dependent by providing 24-hour emergency and longer-term care. The grant supports the Jennings Home for Girls and Boys’ Group Home for youths ages 11-17 who are homeless and in crisis – having either run away from home or been locked out by their families. Funds provide housing, support services and essential items needed to keep youth safe, help them heal and reunite with family.
