United Marketing Group, Inc. (UMG) recently participated in Shelter’s recent 22nd Annual Charity Ball called “Rock the Casbah” on Friday, November 20, 2009, at the Grand Ballroom of the Hyatt Regency Woodfield.
Shelter, Inc. is a nonprofit child welfare agency. Since 1975, Shelter has provided community-based, emergency and temporary housing for children and adolescents from birth through age 17 in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago, Illinois, who are abused, neglected, dependent or in need of supervision.
Children and adolescents who are abused, neglected, dependent or in need of supervision are cared for in Shelter’s Emergency, Traditional and Home-of-Relative Foster Care Programs, and in three Group Homes, which include the Boys Group Home in Palatine, the Jennings Home for Girls in Schaumburg, and the Older Adolescent Group Home in Arlington Heights for boys, ages 16 to 17. Shelter also provides the only Healthy Families program in the Northwest Suburbs, a home visitation and parenting education program for first-time parents.
“As the population of the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago grows, so do its problems. The children and adolescents in our community need Shelter, Inc. more than ever,” said Alan Portelli, CEO and President of United Marketing Group.
