Started in 1970, Response for Teens is a JCFS Chicago program specifically devoted to supporting adolescents (ages 12 through 24) and their families in the Jewish and general community. We provide prevention, outreach and counseling in a teen-friendly environment that empowers youth to make healthy life choices.
Response for Teens takes a holistic approach to working with tweens, teens, young adults and families. Using a multidisciplinary model, we employ Master’s-level counselors (LCPCs and LCSWs), prevention educators and medical personnel focused on reproductive health care.
We believe that youth thrive when they have the information they need to make healthy choices and a safe space in which to receive support. Response for Teens welcomes teens of all religions, races, identities, sexual orientations and ethnic backgrounds.
While Response for Teens is located on the border of Chicago’s West Rogers Park and Skokie, Illinois, we serve a wide geographic area.
