About Lawrence Hall Youth Services

Lawrence Hall Youth Services logo

Lawrence Hall is a not-for-profit child welfare agency established to assist at-risk youth and their families through a seamless delivery of services designed to develop the self-worth, knowledge and skills they need to lead independent and productive lives.

Our Core Beliefs
We cherish the children we care for and work with them to make positive moral decisions.
We believe all children deserve a life that is free from physical, sexual, and emotional harm.
We tell the truth about what children experience in our society.
We advocate in the best interest of our children.
We behave ethically and act at all times in creative rather than destructive ways.
We value diversity and treat each other with consideration and appreciation of one another’s worth.

Lawrence Hall Youth Services provides highly specialized and individualized care for children and adolescents with severe emotional and behavioral challenges due to trauma, abuse and neglect. Each year, Lawrence Hall’s continuum of care offers a full array of services to nearly 1,000 children, adolescents, and their families through: • Fully accredited Therapeutic Day School and Diagnostic Education Program; • Specialized, Traditional and Home-of-Relative Foster Care; • Acute on-campus Children and Familiy Treatment Center, Family Community Homes, and Specialty Service Centers; and • Transitional and Independent Living Programs for older adolescents. Throughout all of Lawrence Hall’s programs, youth benefit from clinical care, therapeutic recreation, art and music therapy, and pastoral care to treat trauma and stabilize behavior. The seamless transition between levels of care within each program and across programs equips our youth with the tools and skills they need to set them on the path toward becoming proud, productive participants in society.

Volunteer Center Welcomes Additional Board members

Posted on

Join Us!

The operations of the Volunteer Center are supported by an energetic board of directors. This is a working board that is committed to volunteerism, service and making a difference in our community — a fulfilling experience!

The primary work of the board involves our Days of Service throughout the year that provide community-building opportunities to volunteer as an individual or with family, friends and service groups.  Board members also assist our various committees and help us with our annual fundraising efforts.

We enjoy a spirited camaraderie and act as liaisons in the community to encourage volunteerism. The Board seeks to have representatives in the New Trier Township and the surrounding N.E. Metro Chicago area.

We are always looking for anyone who simply has a passion for service and a willingness to help. We do have specific needs for those who have any of the following skills:

  • graphic design experience
  • communications – social media rep
  • marketing & public relations
  • program development/management
  • finance and accounting/treasurer duties
