Program Description:

Chaddock, which has served children and their families since 1853, offers residential and educational services for male and female adolescents, ages 8 – 16.

Licensed, Accredited and nationally respected, Chaddock was founded as a ministry of the United Methodist Church in 1853 and has a legacy of more than 150 years serving children. Today, the Chaddock team includes in excess of 175 highly trained employees who serve thousands of children and families every year through foster care and a full range of preventative, educational, and treatment services.

Much of Chaddock's success has been guided by our strong:

Mission, Vision and Values
Chaddock is on the cutting edge of residential treatment for children who have experienced severe abuse, neglect, or other trauma in their early years of development, and is nationally-respected for the excellent results demonstrated in our Integrative Attachment Therapy (IAT) program. Many of the children in this program are adopted by loving families, but the unresolved issues from their early childhood prevent them from forming loving, nurturing relationships.

However, three out of four children in this successful program, whose issues were so profound that they were unable to live in a home environment, are able to return home or go to a less restrictive environment (such as living on their own in an apartment) in an average of 12-18 months.

Chaddock’s residential program also includes traditional residential care for other emotional and/or behavioral issues, a group home and a transitional living program for those youth who are ready to learn the life skills needed to move into the community. Chaddock works diligently with the whole family from the first phone contact until the conclusion of follow up care after discharge to rebuild relationships and bring about healing for the profound pain and unresolved trauma experienced by these children.

Chaddock’s on-campus accredited school provides specialized education for residential students and also for many other students from the Quincy area. Chaddock School, challenges the students to stretch academically. Field trips, school dances, choir performances, end of semester celebrations and poetry slams enhance the learning environment and showcase the talent of our students.

In addition, Chaddock’s staff offers consultation and training to schools, parents, and other professionals across the nation and overseas.

Our foster care program is consistently rated as one of the top programs in the state of Illinois. The ultimate goal of our program is to provide a safe and loving home for children in need. Every effort is made to repair broken family units and return children to a secure and caring home with their birthparents. When this is not possible, we work to transition the children into permanent adoptive homes.

Discover the Chaddock difference of providing evidenced-based treatment combined with holistic therapy and a nurturing environment. Chaddock is ready to care for your family; for we believe that every child deserves a chance.

All referrals for Chaddock’s services receive careful consideration. Referrals come from a variety of sources, including:

Psychiatrists or Psychologists
Professional Educational Consultants
Social Workers
School Counselors
At the time of referral, basic information about the child is evaluated to see if Chaddock is an appropriate next step. If we conclude that we are not the best fit for a particular child, then we still try to suggest another placement that is more suited to the child's needs. Children are accepted for admission to Chaddock based on the clinical criteria and assessment of needs conducted during the admission process.

Admissions Process

It’s easy to get the admissions process moving – just start with a phone call. During the initial phone call, we’ll discuss basic information and conduct an initial screening to determine if your child meets the criteria for Chaddock’s programs. We want to make sure that we can offer you and your family the hope and healing you deserve.

If our admissions staff and your family feel that Chaddock’s programs could be beneficial, we’ll take the next step and send a referral packet. You can consider this homework, but it provides us with valuable information which allows our admissions committee to make an informed decision about the care and treatment of your child.

At any time, you are welcome to visit Chaddock and tour our campus. We think you’ll like what you see. Dedicated staff, a warm and welcoming environment and most importantly, effective and holistic treatment all geared to the needs of each individual in our care.

Once the referral packet is completed and all supporting materials attached and forwarded, our admissions committee will promptly review the information and contact you to discuss their findings.

Funding Sources

After you've decided that our program is right for you and your child has been accepted into the Chaddock program, the admissions department will contact you to arrange a date of placement and guide you to potential sources of funding for your Chaddock experience.

We’ve learned over the years that funding can come from many sources including your insurance provider, Medicaid programs and even your state public school system. We will serve as your navigator as you cut through the red tape with the ultimate goal of securing funding and in the process securing the future of your child.

Admissions personnel will arrange a meeting with the Director of Finance to establish payment for services.
