Comment from Cassandra Westbrooks:

The best little clinic on the South side with an old fashion Doctor that treat the whole person! My experience is a long wait because of the policy first, first served but I always feel like Dr. Stewart's favorite patient! I even went to his private practice when I got a job with benefits!

    • Location: Chicago, IL - 60615 | 1.3 miles away
    • Contact Phone: (877) 692-8686
    • Details: The Children’s Reception Center located in the Chicago area is a twenty-four hour care program contracted with the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) for youth ages 7 – 21. Referrals are accepted from DCFS, and other Purchase of Service (POS) providers contracted with DCFS, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Aunt Martha’s, Children’s Reception Center, (CRC) is designed to provide emergency, temporary placement for children who have been removed from their homes and families of origins due to allegations of neglect, maltreatment and/or abandonment and placed in the custody of DCFS. In addition, children who have lost their child welfare placement or who are experiencing difficulties to the extent that their behaviors and emotional well -being is deteriorating are also referred to the CRC for care while a permanent placement is sought. Our primary population consists of youth that have suffered the acute trauma of being removed from their home or children who have had chronic trauma suffered repeatedly over time. The provision of basic needs under emergency conditions in a trauma informed environment is our primary goal. Beyond the basic provision of a safe place to stay, nutritious food and adequate clothing; we have a strong focus on building a predictable routine for our children and building caring relationships quickly to help reduce the effects of the traumatic event. A unique focus of Aunt Martha’s remains our strong dedication to preserving the academic relationship and strides already achieved by our children. All too often our children experience long interruptions in their schooling, making progress that much harder when exiting the system. All CRC children participate in group and individual therapy, house meetings, on-site and off-site recreational programming, skill building and a variety of wellness activities on a weekly basis. Utilizing an Integrated Care Coordination approach, the CRC provides medical, dental, and psychiatric services to our youth as part of a multi-disciplinary approach to care, that enhances permanent placements. Our on-site Clinic and staff ensure our children are seen timely, at hours that limit academic interruptions and are provided services in a compassionate manner. A primary role of the CRC is to immediately stabilize a child’s behavior, advocate for resources, secure key documents so staff can immediately build a safe, quality care environment, maintaining connections to family members whenever possible to limit the traumatic experience. These activities culminate in family reunification or the identification of a permanent living arrangement that is uniquely tailored to help the child succeed.
