ALLENDALE ASSOCIATION is for troubled kids and their families…

Allendale Association, known also as Allendale 4 Kids, is an extraordinary place in Lake Villa, IL, that I had the honor to visit a few times in person and document in the video above. Between their residential and non-residential programs Allendale serves over 1,200 children, youth, and families annually. These children  are often victims of abuse, neglect or severe mental illness. They arrive at Allendale with the devastating experiences of failure in the classroom, misunderstanding at home and isolation in the community. The goal of the treatment offered at Allendale is to help children and youth overcome hardships and benefit from a living environment that addresses problems while focusing on strengths and the development of strong, healthy relationships.
