About Us

Ignite (formerly Teen Living Programs) is a non-profit organization that has supported and strengthened Chicago’s most vulnerable young people for nearly 40 years. We are the only agency in the city to focus solely on 14-24 year olds who are experiencing homelessness; and we offer comprehensive, year-round services to address everything from emergency needs and housing to education, job readiness, and embracing a healthy lifestyle. Our services are available on Chicago’s south side, in neighborhoods of high poverty and violence and where critical supportive services are lacking.


VISION:

To create a world where all youth have a safe home, are valued, supported, and provided with everything they need to reach their full potential.


MISSION:

 Ignite builds community, hope and opportunity for youth who are homeless. We address their immediate needs and help them achieve independence and stable housing.


 VALUES:

Generosity - We believe in being open, patient, accepting, respectful, and giving without expectation.


Courage - We invite risk and investment from all our partners in order to aspire, strive, and succeed.


Accountability - We drive impact, work in collaboration, and deliver meaningful outcomes with honesty, fairness and transparency.


Transformation - We foster curiosity, energy, innovation, and growth in a safe and affirming environment.


Community Impact - We strive to create lasting societal change through shared responsibility, inclusion, cooperation, and celebration.
