Social Services Unit

Helping Residents

When faced with a crisis, people often recognize that professional help is needed, but may not know where to obtain appropriate services. The Social Services Unit offers Vernon Hills' residents and families the opportunity to work through difficulties. All services are free and confidential.

Numerous services are available, including crisis intervention, individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy. Issues such as depression, suicide, domestic violence, and marital conflict are addressed. Youth problems, including substance abuse, runaway, and parent-child conflict are some of the many areas the unit services.

The Village of Vernon Hills has contracted with OMNI Youth Services to provide social services to families and/or individuals who have been referred by the Vernon Hills Police Department. These services will be provided by OMNI Social Worker, Mr. Vel Vetri, at the Vernon Hills Police Department or in the community, as needed.
