  • Mission:
  • Beacon Therapeutic Diagnostic and Treatment Center’s mission is to empower vulnerable children and families by helping them find their way to a better future by providing accredited educational, mental health, and social services.

  • Overview:
  • Beacon Therapeutic has three core programs: elementary and Jr. /Sr. high therapeutic day schools; outpatient mental health services and homeless outreach services.

    Beacon’s day schools provide comprehensive, sound and outcome driven special education services to children and youth ages 3-21 who have emotional, behavioral, or learning needs that exceed their local school’s resources.

    Beacon employs a diverse, multidisciplinary staff including psychiatrists, licensed clinical social workers, therapists and case managers. Beacon’s outpatient mental health programs include innovative intensive outpatient day treatment to young children (ages 3-5) and older youth (ages 6-17) as well as a traditional outpatient community mental health clinic. Beacon was the first agency in Illinois to develop a specialized treatment program for homeless preschoolers who display anxiety, insecure attachments, and behavioral problems requiring more intensive care.

    Beacon’s homeless outreach programs deliver mobile, clinical and case management services to homeless families in over a dozen emergency, interim, transitional and second stage shelters in Chicago. Highly trained clinicians help children and families to cope with the trauma of being homeless. The program design is flexible and tailored to meet the specific needs of individual shelters and families. Barriers to services are identified and addressed at both the systems and individual family level. The core components of the homeless outreach program include: intensive case management, clinical services, housing advocacy, children’s services, substance use services.

  • History:
  • Founded as a private therapeutic day school in a church basement, Beacon has been helping to create new endings for some of Chicago’s most disadvantaged children and families for over 45 years. Using proven, behavior-changing academic and clinical best practices Beacon’s programs have developed to ensure that the highly vulnerable special populations served have access to the services and programs they need. Today Beacon is a multi-site organization that responds to the needs of children and their families through three main programs: elementary and Jr. /Sr. high therapeutic day schools; outpatient mental health services and homeless outreach services.

    Beacon assists some of the most high-risk, disadvantaged and diagnostically complex children, adolescents and families living in the metropolitan Chicago area to create a new ending for their lives. Beacon is accredited by the Joint Commission, AdvancEd and is approved by the Illinois Department of Human Services Bureau of Accreditation and licensed by the Illinois State Board of Education.
