Barrington nonprofit moves to central location

Barrington Youth & Family Services has moved to a more central location in a building in downtown Barrington.

Representatives from the village, the business community and the Barrington Area Chamber of Commerce gathered with others Tuesday for a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the agency’s new location at 118 Applebee St. in Barrington.



“We are honored and very excited about this new location that literally puts us in a spot where we can shine in the center of the Barrington community,” Barrington Youth & Family Services Board President Chad Thalheimer said in a statement. “This organization opened its doors back in 1972, and we look forward to what the future holds with our amazing staff of clinicians who truly love their work.”

The agency’s previous location was about a half-mile west on County Line Road.

The community-based nonprofit social service agency has the “goal to build healthier families by providing counseling and preventative programming to children, teens, couples and families,” its website states.

The agency was named Barrington Youth Services and took its current name in 2005. It also employs Spanish-speaking staff members and offers programming specifically designed for the Latino community.
