Emergency Services

We work with community partners to identify youth in crisis, to provide a broad range of services to help youth, parents and families recover from crises and strengthen family relationships through crisis intervention. 



Community Food Bank

Food justice is an important part of community justice. We take non perishable items and use them to fight hunger. Help us connect with donors and with people in need.



Evening Reporting Center

Evening Reporting Center (ERC) is a community-based alternative to detention for a target group of minor respondents who would otherwise be detained in Cook County’s Juvenile Temporary Detention Center. ERC serves youth age 10-18 who are on home confinement and assigned to the program by the court.

This program aims to:

  • Help youth remain arrest-free;
  • Minimize risk-taking and delinquent behaviors during and beyond program participation;
  • Reduce recidivism and the likelihood of re-arrest; and,
  • Ensure that clients attend their scheduled court appearanc
