Where Flowers Bloom so Does HOPE--Garden and Plant Enthusiastic Assistant

Use your GARDENING and PLANT skills to keep our Healing Gardens growing!

Kenneth Young Center is a safety net for our neighbors in need. Our mission is to "help people feel good, do better, and find solutions." Part of our healing process is providing clients with an inviting and nurturing environment. We have many plants in our building-space, and we have a beautiful space outside to experience the calming presence of nature--our Healing Garden.

ONE HOUR a WEEK is all it may take! 

We need one or two volunteers for one hour a week to water the plants in the office building throughout the year. During the Spring and Summer months, it would be great if you could also tend to our Healing Garden. We are conveniently located in Elk Grove Village, and we ask that you be available during the week.

A wonderful quote by Tennessee Williams says it all: "Where flowers bloom so does Hope." Won't you help us plant the seeds of hope for your neighbors? You'll be so glad you did.
