The Pilsen Wellness Center actively seeks to provide holistic human services to individuals and families through culturally sensitive education, prevention, treatment, and recovery interventions. These services are geared toward supporting family relationships, facilitating community empowerment, and stimulating economic development.
The Pilsen Wellness Center, Inc., formerly known as the Pilsen-Little Village Community Mental Health Center, has provided culturally sensitive services to a multi-cultural population for over 40 years. Established in 1967 by community members seeking to address an evident gap in mental health care, the Center has offered quality and affordable services to persons with limited financial resources.
The Pilsen Wellness Center, Inc. has expanded its original Mental Health programming to include substance abuse treatment, youth and HIV prevention services, as well as alternative secondary education. With 9 programming sites located in communities with predominately Latino-origin residents in the Chicago land area, it remains one of the few community-based, human services organization with a 90 percent bilingual and bicultural staff.
Throughout the years, the Center has offered holistic human services to children and families which seek to preserve and support family health, stimulate economic development, and facilitate community empowerment through wellness.
For additional information, please contact us at any one of our 8 programming sites, conveniently located and in the neighborhood.
