Youth Counseling

Child Link’s Counseling Program supports youth in our community by giving them the tools to adopt useful behaviors and habits that they will carry with them for the rest of their lives. Our licensed professionals evaluate the needs of each individual and work with them to prepare a treatment plan. Our counselors work to address many areas, such as self-harm, social skills, anger management, self-identity, self-development, family and peer relationships, gang violence, substance abuse, bullying, and teen pregnancy. Types of services may include individual, group, and family therapies, as well as referrals for other needed services.

In 2017, our Counseling Program served over 68 children from diverse communities throughout the Chicago area, including: Pilsen, Little Village, Brighton Park, South Lawndale, and North Lawndale. Children we serve are often directly and indirectly impacted by violence in their environment, including domestic violence, separation from parent(s), gang violence, and abuse. Child Link is working to help resolve these tragic issues and avoid the loss of lives due to violence.
