Youth Outreach Services, Inc. Northwest Youth Outreach
February 8, 2011

I have known and at times collaborated with YOS for over 10 years now, since they became involved in Multi-SystemicTherapy in our community, later offering various kinds of counseling to our youth.

I appreciate their hands-on commitment to the communities they are a part of, and to the families and youth they serve. Their services have been delivered in a professional, kind and caring manner. The families have appreciated their relationships with YOS, and the support they have felt.

I wish YOS could secure funding again to offer services in our community.

The Great!

As I said above, MultiSystemic Therapy, treating the ecology of the youth and family. We also hosted Life Skills programs they offered some years back.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Consider their focus area -- if they are to remain in the northwest and west areas of Chicago and nearby suburbs, how can they support the development of high-quality, similar services in other parts of the city.

MY ROLE:
Professional with expertise in this field & I collaborated in making and receiving referrals for services.
