Arden Shore Group Home for Boys

We have a 24 hour community based group home in Waukegan, IL for boys living with severe emotional and behavioral problems. Most of these youth have experienced some form of abuse, neglect, loss and/or trauma that has led to an inability to function in ideal family and community settings

The group home is established for boys ages 10 to 19. Typically, the youth are living with mental disorders such as attention deficit disorder (ADD), disruptive behavior, mood disorders, impulse control, detachment, post traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), conduct disorders, adjustment disorders, substance abuse, and sexual behavior issues. We provide a structured, safe and nurturing environments. For the first time, some of the boys have people in their lives that care about their welfare. Arden Shore helps the boys develop a sense of self worth and belonging with the support of a caring staff and community.

Our goal is to help the boys improve their ability to function in a family and social setting and improve their academic or vocational skills. Individual and group therapy focuses on topics such as anger management, vocational skills, budgeting, menu planning, and healthy lifestyle. The boys attend public school and participate in community activities, learning coping skills and how to behave in social settings.

We work to help the boys return to their family or be placed in foster care. For boys in their late teens, we assist with the transition and the promote the idea of moving towards independent living. 

For more information, please contact  (847) 903- 9908, ext. 163. If you are able, please donate to the group home with a financial gift or in-kind contribution. The home and the boys in our care have on-going building, household and personal needs.
