2019 Gala Raises Over $155,000 for YFC Clients

YFC's Night In Havana Gala Committee


Hats off to the ladies of Youth & Family Counseling’s Auxiliary for coordinating an incredible 2019 Gala!  As these photos will attest, this year’s colorful, Cuban-themed event, A Night in Havana, was a roaring success.  Held on Saturday, September 14 at the elegant Ivanhoe Golf Club in Mundelein, YFC's Gala welcomed nearly 175 guests, who joined together to raise over $155,000 in support of YFC’s work.  The evening included cocktails, Live and Silent Auctions, brightly-colored centerpieces courtesy of floral artist Stephanie Marcus, dinner and dancing to the lively music of Cuban band Charangueo.

Is This Normal?

Ever wish you could talk to a therapist just to ask a few questions, or get some feedback or direction?

All of us face emotional challenges or worry about relationships at one time or another. Not everyone wants – or needs - to participate in ongoing counseling sessions, but talking to a trained therapist can provide direction, support and resources when you need a little extra help.

And that's exactly what YFC’s new CONSULT A THERAPIST program is designed to do. Schedule a 45-minute consultation with one of YFC’s licensed therapists to discuss:

Marginalized Children and Mental Health

Hatred Xenophobia Racism

Growing up is tough, no matter who you are. But for children who are marginalized – those who are refugees, immigrants, undocumented, LGBTQ, or in a religious/racial minority – life stressors have become even more onerous due, in part, to recent political developments. According to a joint report from the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and the Illinois Childhood Trauma Coalition, there is evidence that bullying is on the rise, as some students have interpreted current political rhetoric as permission to mistreat students of color and minority status.  Fear of deportation and separation from family trigger feelings of hopelessness and helplessness in refugee and immigrant children.
