Community Youth Services Grant
Our Community Youth Services (CYS) grant is a new program providing prevention services to youth between 6th-12th grade. It was developed and funded by a grant through the Illinois Department of Human Services.
The CYS serves as a community network connecting youth to existing health, employment, and social service organizations.
All Prospect Heights and Wheeling community members are welcome!
