Cunningham is a place of constant activity
Each day we have 60 youth living on campus in full time residential care, and another 40 attending CIRCLE Academy, our day treatment education program l in Urbana. We are blessed with a beautiful park-like 37 acres and love to share our mission with each of our visitors as we walk the grounds.
Learn about our History
Learn about Judge Joseph and Mary Cunningham’s 125+ year legacy which continues to grow with the season. Understand why ‘hope begins here.’ is more than just a tagline. And leave knowing that we are creating a safe community, a good education, and a place to call home for youth who suffer from serious emotional and behavioral challenges that have been caused by abuse, neglect, mental illness, and more.
