Schaumburg Township and KYC: Partners in the Community

Logo Townshipofschaumburg

Kenneth Young Center and the Township of Schaumburg have had a longstanding partnership to ensure residents have access to high quality mental health and older adult services. Through counseling for clients of all ages and support of older adults, funding from the Township supported KYC’s continual care for the most vulnerable in our community.

In 2012, this partnership expanded, adding significant support specifically for children and adolescents in need of behavioral health services. Township of Schaumburg residents span 30-square miles and live in Elk Grove Village, Hanover Park, Hoffman Estates, Rolling Meadows, Roselle, Schaumburg, and Streamwood.

Today, our partnership with the Township of Schaumburg remains strong and committed. The Township generously provides funding to support child and adolescent services, ensuring youth with mental illness receive quality and compassionate support from KYC, regardless of their ability to pay.

More than 14 KYC staff people work from the Township building, providing counseling the children and families from KYC’s lower-level offices. These offices are also the centralized hub for our Positive Youth Development program working in area middle and high schools to promote healthy lifestyle choices that prevent alcohol consumption, drug use, and teen pregnancy.

This article focused on KYC’s Child and Adolescent Services that have been funded by the Township as the first of a three-part series outlining our partnership. State tuned for more information on our project partnerships for adults and seniors in the community!

Kenneth Young Center is proud to partner with the Township of Schaumburg to ensure all young people have safe and stable access to mental health services. Their support is vital to our programs’ success and the success of our clients. Thank you, Township of Schaumburg!
