Cunningham Children’s Home provides vocational education services through their Vocational Options Program. Eligible unemployed youth who are out of school and between the ages of 18 and 25 receive the training and support needed to make a successful transition into the work force. Eligible individuals will learn positive coping and life skills, identify realistic vocational goals, and develop the skills to meet those goals. For more information, contact Deb Lewis, Vocational Options Coordinator, by phone at 217-337-9047 or email at [email protected]. Now in its 125th year, Cunningham remains an exemplary child welfare and educational services agency that provides therapeutic intervention and caring support to more than 450 youth and their families in our community.
