Residential Care & Treatment Services

“I decided that the best choice for me is to live with a foster family while my mom & I are working on our relationship. I’m working on improving myself and I know she is too. Even though it was hard at first, I think we both realize it’s the best choice for us.” – Alexis, Allendale Resident & Self-Advocate

Allendale’s Residential Care & Treatment Services Program gives kids a safe, clinically sound and structured world in which to heal and grow. Here, they find security in consistent routines and empowerment to set their own goals while learning to form healthy relationships. Our professional staff are trained in the REStArT model and work collaboratively with each client to achieve their personal goals.

How We Help:

  • Round-the-clock treatment & care, provided in cottages at our Lake Villa, IL campus; our North Chicago; IL & Benet Lake, WI facilities.
  • Community group home living in Waukegan, IL.
  • Individualized treatment, implemented by multi-disciplinary teams led by youth and families.
  • Consistent family support via routine clinical consultations with trained and licensed therapeutic staff even after the youth returns home.
  • Focus on graduation and vocational/career preparation, tailored to each youth’s interests and strengths.
  • Enriching, therapeutic recreational experiences…the opportunity to “just be a kid“—a new experience for all too many children.
