Located at the northwest corner of Howard Park in Wilmette, The Warming House Youth Center is a non-profit agency that is open to 6th through 12th grade teens six days per week. The Warming House provides a welcoming environment to all teens. Teens may drop in voluntarily during open hours and use the Center in whatever way best suits them. Whether playing ping pong, cooking in the kitchen, doing homework, or chatting on the couch, teens build healthy relationships with staff and peers. Structured programs are offered daily and include: cooking/baking, cultural humility, volunteering, creative arts, health discussion groups, youth leadership board, academics, community service, mental health check-ins and recreation.
