Helping people feel good, do better, and find solutions

About

Kenneth Young Center provides community mental health and senior services to the northwest suburbs. Clients and their families come to us in some of their most desperate moments. We provide service coordination and in-home services for frail elderly persons.

H.O.M.E. (Helping Older adults Manage Everyday) is a program dedicated to helping seniors remain as independent as possible. As a H.O.M.E. Support for Elderly volunteer, you will be matched with a frail, elderly client. You'll help them by shopping, light household tasks, and visits. You'll show them you care, and show them that they are important. When you do this, you not only help a senior citizen, but you also help to provide critical respite for family caregivers. Make a difference; make a FRIEND!

[Kenneth Young Center is a JCAHO-accredited agency providing community mental health and senior services to the northwest suburbs. Our mission is to help families, teens, children and seniors feel good, do better, and find solutions.
