Opened in 1997 and built on the mission of Father Flanagan’s interest in young people and their struggle to grow into responsible, productive members of society, Casa Tepeyac was acquired by SOS Illinois in 2011.
The intervention facility located in the Back of the Yards neighborhood of Chicago offers two types of services: the Group Residential Living Program, a short-term shelter that is designed to assist at-risk youth ages 11-17, and Family Strengthening Services, which work with families to build on their strengths, tackle tough problems, and stabilize aid to youth dealing with issues related to gang involvement.
Although distinct from our foster care model, these two programs enhance and expand SOS Illinois’ ability to effectively provide appropriate services for at-risk youth.
