Rincon Family Services will celebrate a major milestone, our 50th Anniversary!

About this event

On Friday, September 30, 2022, Rincon Family Services will celebrate a major milestone, our 50th Anniversary. The event will take place at the historic Congress Hotel where we will highlight our 50 years of impact, and honor individuals who have been critical to our work. We would be honored if you join us on this celebration!

Through the support of our funders and sponsors, Rincon’s programs reach over 15,000 individuals annually, regardless of their ability to pay for services. Your contribution will allow Rincon to expand our reach and increase our impact.

The proceeds of this event will directly support our Youth Community Programs. Our Youths Hold the Keys to a Brighter Future

This year, we are thrilled to honor:

- Miguel del Valle, President of the Chicago Board of Education with the Rolando Correa Lifetime Achievement Award

- Hon. Judge Joanne Rosado, Cook County Circuit and Board Member of the Puerto Rican Bar Association of Illinois, with the Hilda Frontany Community Care Award.

- The Youth Care Award will go to the talented Puerto Rican mural artist, Cristian Roldan Aponte.

Through these three awards, we want to recognize the legacy, community service and valuable work of these outstanding members of the community.

We are excited to announce that “Mike Oquendo - Mikey O” - will donate his charisma and talent to our cause and serve as this year’s Master of Ceremonies.

About Rincon Family Services

What began as a small clinic established in 1972 by young community leaders on the west side of Chicago has grown into one of the largest providers of high-quality and culturally competent services focusing on counseling, behavioral health services, substance use prevention and treatment, violence prevention, education, and family services.

In 2011, “El Rincon” became “Rincon Family Services” as a result of the awareness that substance use can have a domino effect on families. In the last 10 years, Rincon has added seven new programs that engage children, teenagers, and parents with effective methods of treating and preventing addictive behaviors. Additionally, we are invested in diversifying our resources in order to provide the most comprehensive and sustainable care available to our clients.
