Choose to Change at Ombudsman Chicago

Choose to Change is a program offered at the Ombudsman Chicago South campus that combines the services of the Youth Advocacy Program (YAP) alongside the SPARCS grief/trauma group and individual therapy. The mission of the program is to provide therapeutic services and resources to youths dealing with trauma, and help support them in leading safe and successful lives.

Special thanks to those who help make this program possible for our students – and to Ms. Chelsea Hopson, who has been servicing students at our Chicago South location for the past 3 school years (even through remote learning), facilitating our SPARCS groups and offering individual therapy services.
