Our Mission

Lawrence Hall is a not-for-profit human service agency established to assist at-risk youth and their families through a seamless delivery of services designed to develop the self-worth, knowledge, and skills they need to lead independent and productive lives.
We support our mission with an annual budget of $20-$22 million derived from government grants and contracts, private support, and allocations from the United Way of Metropolitan Chicago, Episcopal Charities and Community Services. Throughout our long history, we have demonstrated sound fiscal management, using our resources responsibly to plan for future growth.

Our Vision

Lawrence Hall is a community of staff, volunteers, and board members dedicated to creating a society in which our children and their families are treated as valued members

For years, his job has been a calling; he works with sexually problematic teens that require intensive supervision and support. Randle balances a mix of duties that include supervising youth at Lawrence Hall and during their family visits and in-home visits.
