CARE Residential

Our CARE Residential Program uses a trauma-informed approach to help young men ages 10-18 years old heal from past trauma and increase their capacity to engage in healthy, trusting relationships with adults and caregivers. Clients are provided with a safe, structured environment and individualized treatment to help them gain important life skills. They learn to deal with their emotions in a healthy way and increase their motivation to engage in positive decision making.  

This program builds on youth strengths and provides opportunities to increase their competencies. We also offer day school on site provided by Banner Northlake School, which is located on the Lake Villa residential program campus.

I have always had a passion for helping children and families. I strongly believe that when families are given the proper tools to build better lives for themselves and their children, not only will they do so but the impact lasts for generations to come.
