Warming House Youth Center Welcomes Teens

Emily Schnell, Executive Director of the Warming House Youth Center in Wilmette, spoke to club members during the regular noon meeting via Zoom. She reviewed the history of the Center which was founded in 1971. Emily, a licensed clinical social worker, discussed the Centers services to all teens - both as they existed before the COVID pandemic and now. Activities range from programing, serving as a gathering place, and providing some counseling. Like most non-profit organizations, they are currently faced with the challenges of finding ways to interact with their clientele virtually as well as ways to recouperate from lost fund raising opppotunities.
