Save The Date - Moulin Rouge 2018 Gala

Mark your calendar for an unforgettable evening with YFC!  Join us for our 2018 Moulin Rouge Gala, to be held Saturday, November 3 at the exclusive Sanfilippo Estate in Barrington. Tickets go on sale in early September, but sponsorships are available now.

The estate’s Carousel Pavilion – home to the famed Eden Palais Carousel - will be the backdrop for this fabulous event.  This awe-inspiring venue is open to the public on a very limited basis, and is chock-full of beautifully restored of antique music machines, steam engines, calliopes, art glass and other remarkable novelties from the past.  You won’t believe your eyes – or your ears! 

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.
