Faith Based Breakfast

The St. Clair County Youth Coalition hosted a Faith Based Breakfast on October 21, 2004.  The Faith-Based Breakfast had no registration fee and was held at Our Lady of the Snows Shrine.  Participants enjoyed breakfast while representatives from the Youth Coalition's DMC project, the Youth Coalition's Clinical Committee, CHASI, Chestnut Health Systems,  Illinois Family Partnership Network, Kids Hope United, and Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House presented information concerning the services available for youth in our area, gaps in services for youth in our area and needs the Faith Based community could fill regarding these youth. 

A special thanks to Chestnut Health Systems, Child Advocacy Center, Girl Scouts, Illinois Family Partnership Network, Lessie Bates Davis Neighborhood House, and the St. Clair County Mental Health Board for lending valuable staff members to help organize this project.
