My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for NEW FOUNDATION CENTER INC , Northfield, IL, USA
My son was diagnosed with a severe chronic mental illness in 1999. He was in a State Approved School when I received a call about possible graduation. I said no and had numerous interviews in April 2001 to find an alternative program. I first learned about New Foundation Center (formerly Wilpower) in April 2001 when I interviewed, was impressed by their program and put my son on the waiting list. With Counsel's help we received approval for a residential program until he aged out of school services in 2003.
In 2004 my son was placed in a setting that was not appropriate for the care that was needed at the time. With the help of a great advocate and professional working with and for people with mental illness, Jay was most helpful in recommending transferring my son to an Intermediate Care Facility. I had interviewed there in April 2001 as well. This program works specifically for those with mental health needs. With past records and proper care , the team was able to get state approval for New Foundation Center in April 2007.
