CertaPro is proud to support the fundraising efforts of Youth Services, the place to turn to for mental health services for children and adolescents in Chicago’s northern suburbs.
The team at Certa doing what they do best — painting! Certa is joining other local businesses to bring joy in May by painting windows on downtown businesses. Local children will be paired with businesses to help on May 13, 14 and 15th.
During the week of May 17 through May 23, the community will be invited to walk the painted window path for a fun scavenger hunt and visit stores for special promotions.
Did you know 53% of children ages 3-17 have one or more emotional, behavioral or development condition? Youth Services provides individual and group counseling, development and mentoring programs, crisis intervention, study buddies, a pride youth group and educational outreach programs to help children and adolescents. The organization works with insurance companies and offers a sliding fee scale, to help provide care to families of all means.
TLS is launching a company-wide campaign to encourage company “Moment Makers” to send cards, letters, drawings and crafts to residents of local senior and assisted living facilities. This is a fun way to introduce children to our Social Purpose and let them show off their drawing and craft skills. Moment Makers who wish to engage in ongoing communications with residents are encouraged to include their mailing address for return letters.
During this time of social isolation, this is a wonderful way for our team members to #FirstServeOthers while brightening the days of seniors in the community.
