Teen REACH back at YMCA after local officials push for release of funds

A popular after-school program for teens is operating again at the YMCA after an 20-month absence that resulted from the lack of a state budget. In both of his proposed budgets, The stopgap budget approved June 30 contained $13 million for Teen REACH statewide, but the program wasn't able to reopen locally until last week after Senator Steve Stadelman and others called for the Illinois Department of Human Services to release $130,000 to the Y.

"The value of providing constructive activities for our youth cannot be overlooked," Stadelman said. "In the long run, programs like Teen REACH save the state money by keeping at-risk kids out or jail and prison."

Gov. Bruce Rauner zeroed out funding in both of his proposed budgets for the Teen Responsibility, Education, Achievement, Care and Hope program. Stadelman joined State Rep. Litesa Wallace, Winnebago County State's Attorney Joe Bruscato and Sheriff Gary Caruana spoke at a news conference to urge the Illinois Department of Human Services to release the local share of the stopgap appropriation. Teen REACH serves youth living at or below the poverty line; the YMCA anticipates being able to accommodate 100 teens with the restored funding.
