Report to the Community July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014 OMNI 2014 Report to the community 1 report to the community mission To partner with parents and the community to provide innovative transformational behavioral and educational support services to children, adolescents, and young adults that create pathways to successful and healthy behaviors throughout life. VISION To lead the way in finding innovative solutions that create positive change in youth, family and community life. dear friends & donors, FY14 continued to be an exciting year for Omni Youth Services. While we were faced with our share of challenges driven by the State of Illinois’ financial position and the ever-changing funding landscape, OMNI had plenty of opportunities and reasons to be excited. OMNI launched several new cutting-edge programs such as SPARCS (Psychotherapy for Adolescents Responding to Chronic Stress) and Life skills for teen parents who are also wards of the state. We also expanded OMNI’s reach by serving new schools, communities and populations. The board of directors finalized a new strategic plan including fine-tuning our mission (see page 2) and identifying OMNI’s long terms goals, focused on decreasing our reliance on state funding and re-establishing OMNI as the go-to experts for youth development and behavioral health needs for all demographics. The Board also grew significantly in 2014, gaining several talented and passionate individuals who are certain to help OMNI continue to succeed in its mission to help youth and families. Thank you to the many donors, volunteers, partners and friends that helped OMNI impact over 32,000 people last year. With your support, along with the incredibly passionate and driven staff and leadership at OMNI, we will continue to meet the growing and changing needs of the young people and families in our communities. Thanks for your support.

My parents work very hard, both day and night to provide for us. I went to six different schools between 3rd and 12th grade. I never felt like I belonged or fit in at any of them. I quickly learned that the partying kids would accept me right off the bat. By sixth grade I was smoking weed and hanging out with the “wrong” crowd. Diana bravely shares her story at the 2014 LightSource Unlimited OMNI Golf Classic OMNI wasn’t my first experience with counseling; I was hospitalized two times in seventh grade for depression, substance use and self-injury. I was at the rock bottom, I was locked up. I remember looking out the windows my first night sobbing and thinking “How did I get here?” I quickly figured out what the professionals wanted to hear so I did what I had to do and said what I had to say to get released. I returned to drugs and cutting, I just got better at hiding it. I came to OMNI my sophomore year of high school as an alternative to suspension and arrest on a marijuana possession violation. OMNI started me in Seven Challenges. I fought it at first but then I realized they were not telling me what I should or 4 OMNI 2014 Report to the community meet diana shouldn’t do. Instead OMNI helped me think about my choices, why I was making the decisions I was making, and get a clear idea of who I really wanted to be and what I needed to do to get there. Over winter break I went on a Journey trip to the Everglades, they were the absolute best ten days of my life! I had never before seen so many bright beautiful stars! I climbed a coconut tree and ate the juiciest Mango. I never imagined that so many beautiful things existed. On that trip I learned how big the world was, how many things the world had to offer me and I learned how strong I really am. I still have my water bottle of sand and shells on my dresser; it makes me smile. On that trip I learned to trust adults and I came to understand that my drug use and cutting had started at twelve because I was sexually assaulted. Until then I hadn’t told anybody what happened to me. I didn’t think anyone would believe me because of who had done it. After Journey I started participating in everything I could at OMNI, counseling, Girls After-School and Summer Programs (GAP and GSP) and other Journey trips. OMNI taught me how to have healthy relationships, take one day at a time, take responsibility for myself, my future, my decisions and ask for help when I need it. I have been substance free for over two years; and I am back on track with my education and a bright future. Without OMNI, I don’t know where I would be today. But I am here because of OMNI and the support of people like you who made it possible for me to get the help I needed. Thank you!! “I didn’t think OMNI could help my daughter, I thought she was too far gone. I thought she was for sure going to end up in jail or dead. OMNI not only helped her but they helped me. I learned how to talk to my daughter. We learned how avoid fights and get along. Now she’s a good role model for her brothers. I am really happy.” Diana’s father OMNI 2014 Report to the community 5 2014 Accomplishments over 30,000 hours of counseling provided to youth and families 97 96 % of clients had no additional criminal charges while under OMNI care. 74 2014 Accomplishments % of clients of OMNI clients ceased or reduced their substance use % of families in the Intact Families Program had no additional calls of neglect or abuse made while in OMNI services. 98 stayed enrolled in % ofhighyouth school or re-enrolled 100 6 % of families who were referred for child physical abuse or neglect in the Intact Families Program were able to avoid having their children placed in foster care or group homes and stayed together OMNI 2014 Report to the community 83 % OMNI’s Peer Jury program places first-time juvenile offenders who admit to committing non-violent crimes before a panel of local teenage volunteers who determine appropriate actions that will repair the harm to the community, including community service, written papers, and letters of apology. This Youth Development Program provides teens the opportunity to volunteer and train to become a juror. Peer Jury volunteers are comprised of a group of youth that hand out sentences to first-time youth offenders. Youth volunteer jurors gain leadership and communication skills as well as gain community awareness while playing an important part in making their communities better. Last year OMNI facilitated six peer juries across the communities of Buffalo Grove, Lake Zurich, Mt. Prospect, Mundelein, Prospect Heights and Wheeling. 97 youth defendants were tried by over 60 volunteer peer jurors. OMNI’s Community Outreach Program provided backpacks and school supplies to 100 families in need at our annual Back to School Fair. The Community Outreach Program provides a variety of services and community linkages that help struggling families overcome obstacles and be more successful in all areas of family life. Over 500 individuals from low income families received a variety of services including emergency assistance, tutoring/ mentoring, parenting education, translation services, computer access, holiday gifts, coat drives, etc. of youth were successful in treatment (reached 80% of their treatment goals) OMNI 2014 Report to the community 7 2014 Accomplishments programs Youth and Family Counseling OMNI offers family, group and individual counseling for youth encountering emotional and behavioral difficulties. OMNI believes the best way to make positive change in adolescents is by encouraging them to learn through their actions. OMNI offers hands-on challenges with a treatment approach known as “experiential therapy”, which connects learning experience with the development of skills for life. In addition to helping youth and families who are struggling with issues like drugs and alcohol abuse, OMNI also works to prevent kids throughout our community from getting involved in negative behaviors. New in OMNI’s Prevention area in FY14 was the creation and launch of the Student Advisory Board (SAB) and Summer Leadership Program. SAB students follow the Engaging Youth in Positive Change curriculum designed to empower students to improve conditions that will lead to a decrease in teen substance use. Students from John Hersey High School came together to focus and work on prevention programming aimed at community middle school aged students. Students garnered support and participation from two local middle school districts. We are very proud of these future leaders! OMNI’s Teen Parenting Service Network Program (TPSN) added a new Life Skills Program to its offering. TPSN provides case management, skill building and support for teen wards of the state who are pregnant or parenting children. Most of these youth have been victims of abuse and have little to no support system or positive adult role models. The Life Skills Program helps these vulnerable youth gain skills to be more successful after transitioning out of the state system including all areas of living such as job skills, housing, money management, health care, home organization, transportation, parenting skills and resources, and much more. The program runs over about eight weeks and is hands on to keep the youth engaged and increase learning. 8 OMNI 2014 Report to the community Youth Development OMNI’s Youth Development Program provides the support and opportunities that facilitate the acquisition of leadership skills, encourage connections to the community, promote the development of personal assets and increase the likelihood that youth will become healthy and successful adults. Opportunities include peer juries, community service projects and REALITY, our teen theatre company. Family Preservation Working with referrals from the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS), OMNI provides home-based services that keep children safe while strengthening families and helping them stay together. Services include in-home counseling and case management for abused and neglected children and their families and support and skill building for teenage wards of the state who are pregnant or already parents. Juvenile Justice Services OMNI has differentiated itself by successfully working with service recipients that are from communities or populations that are often overlooked or underserved, such as youth who are referred to us from the court system. At OMNI, these youth leave with life skills that help them turn their lives around. By emphasizing accountability, the reconciliation of past wrongs, community safety, and the development of emotional, social and cognitive skills, OMNI’s juvenile justice programs help youth develop the skills necessary to make better life choices. Prevention OMNI provides prevention services to the community. Our efforts focus on education, awareness and policy development which promote and support the prevention of alcohol, tobacco and other drug use by youth. Substance Abuse Treatment & Recovery Program Individual, family and group services are tailored to specifically address the issues faced by youth who are striving to become drug-free. OMNI understands the importance of family relationships and the adolescent’s home environment. Because these issues play a significant role in helping an adolescent recover from substance abuse, family counseling groups are an integral part of the youth’s recovery program. Community Outreach Programs OMNI Youth Services does effective community outreach to immigrants and low-income communities through programs from CHiL, an innovative approach to after-school services, to the provision of emergency assistance to families in need. Services including parenting workshops, computer workshops, health events, and translation services promote self-sufficiency and community participation are provided in English and Spanish through relationships that respect the culture and dignity of all. Journey Internationally recognized as an innovative provider of wilderness and adventure-based programming within an outpatient setting, Journey is OMNI Youth Services’ wilderness therapy program. Under the guidance of licensed/certified professionals, adolescents are challenged in unfamiliar outdoor settings. During a Journey experience, the wilderness confronts youth and families with the natural consequences of their good and bad decisions. This facilitates learning and understanding. Adolescents learn to work with others, improve team leadership skills, develop trust, take appropriate risks, increase self-esteem, and have appropriate fun.
