Teen Living Programs is a non-profit organization that has supported and strengthened Chicago's most vulnerable young people for over 40 years. Our agency focuses solely on 14-24 year-olds who are experiencing homelessness and we offer comprehensive, year-round services to address everything from emergency needs and housing to education, job readiness, and embracing a healthy lifestyle. Our services are available on Chicago's south side, in neighborhoods of high poverty and violence and where critical supportive services are lacking.
The young people we work with are survivors – of homelessness, trauma, and instability – and we know that each one has the extraordinary potential to rewrite their story. Every day, our dedicated staff and volunteers work alongside our clients, encouraging them to focus their energy and potential on altering the course of their lives for the better. We are proud that more than two-thirds of our clients will finish high school, complete career training, secure employment, and continue toward a fulfilling, independent future. Together, we are creating hope and opportunity for hundreds of youth every year who might otherwise fall through the cracks.
