Local Youth Service Agencies Receive Big Ten/Penn State Funds

Money that would have been Penn State’s football bowl revenues from the past season were relinquished to the Big Ten. Each of the Big Ten schools is distributing those funds to youth-focused causes selected by the universities.

Northwestern University will donate its share of funds, totally about $188,000, to six area agencies that provide services to youth., four in Evanston and two in Chicago. The Evanston organizations are:

• Metropolitan Family Services Evanston/Skokie Valley, which empowers families to heal through services that address family conflict, children’s mental health and the prevention of abuse and violence.

• The Moran Center for Youth Advocacy, which acts as an advocate for children in the courts and in the community.

• YWCA Evanston/North Shore, which provides a comprehensive domestic violence program that serves approximately 1,000 women and children annually.

• Youth Organizations Umbrella, which offers after-school and summer enrichment programs for youth, counseling and crisis intervention programs.
