A Program of Education Support and Enrichment

Willowbrook Corner is a vital outreach of The Community House providing academic tutoring and social support to local at-risk youth and families in the Willowbrook Corner community, located just 10 minutes south of the Community House.

Programs help students improve their educational performance, practice positive decision-making skills, and provide opportunities for community involvement. The residents of Willowbrook Corner are not served by a municipality or a park district.  As a result, the children living in the Willowbrook Corner neighborhoods do not have the same opportunities as their fellow classmates.

The Community House’s Willowbrook Corner Partners Program provides counseling and therapy services to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. Services are provided at no cost to the residents of Hinsdale Lake Terrace, Hinsdale Point, Waterfall Glen, and Echo Lane. Partnerships are the key to strong and healthy communities. Here at The Partners Program, we use our relationships with other service providers in the community to help clients find the services to meet their needs. Through counseling, groups and workshops, The Partners Program offers experiences and opportunities for clients to heal and enrich their lives.

Why are these services critical?

The neighborhood of Willowbrook Corner came into being as part of public housing relocation programs in the 1970s and 80s.  Located in unincorporated DuPage County, the neighborhood is not served by a municipality, and many families residing in the neighborhood live below the federal poverty level.
