Rutledge has changed as well as we have grown in services, staff, locations, reputation, and lives impacted. From our origins as a residential program for teenage boys only we have evolved to serve more than 212 youth and families in the past year. Our programs of Transitional Living, Foster Care, Independent Living, Differential Response, System of Care, Achieving Academic Success, Youth Counseling & Advocacy, and Reunification now serve young men and women, ages 0 – 21 in variety of settings.


A few things that haven’t changed:
The commitment of our Board of Directors and Staff to delivering needed, supportive, and productive services to the abused/neglected youth of our community.
The support of our donors, vendors, families, and collateral is critical to our mission and the continued development of our Agency.
Thanks all of you who helped us facilitate this success since 1952.

They turn to us…….we turn to you.

In service,
Martin L. Michelson

Executive Director

Community Gifts



UNITED WAY: The 2011 United Way Campaign was again successful. The Youth Counseling and Advocacy program was funded again for $54,260 via the Essential Services of the Community Fund. We were also funded $40,000 for our Achieving Academic Success program for the second year via the Lifelong Learning Initiative.
The United Way Day of Action again sent crews throughout the city to work on projects with various agencies. Volunteers spent a day at RYF cleaning and painting bedrooms and hallways at the Miller Street Group Home.
United Community Bank in Chatham hosted a Casual for a Cause day and we were the beneficiary. Special thanks to Board member Janelle Kirby for facilitating this.
Capitol Strategies Inc. held a Casino Night in November and presented us with the proceeds and several gifts.
Lincolnland Community College’s annual Chickfest benefited several charities, including RYF.
Walmart # 1602 continued to support us in many ways including: in kind donations for the Halloween and Holiday parties, supplies and door prizes for the Nightcrawler 5K, and a Gold Harley sponsorship. They also honored us as special guests at the Grand Opening of their remodeled store at Parkway Pointe.
The Central Illinois Community Blood Center twice “adopted” us for a day to allow us to promote our programs and events. Special thanks to former Board member Amy Friedman for coordinating this.



The Rotary Club of Springfield again supported us with funds from their annual citrus sale. They also sponsored our annual Angel tree which assured that each child received a Christmas gift from Santa.

FY 2012 Fund Raising


Last fall we again held the Nightcrawler 5K as a fundraiser, this time at The CREEK PUB & GRILL in Chatham. We enjoyed good weather and terrific support from the venue, the Chatham Police Department, and the community. The event was successful and grew considerably from the first year.

We also continued the Harley Davidson raffle with a 2011 HERITAGE SOFTAIL CLASSIC and drew for the winners at the CORNER PUB in November. The 2012 Harley Davidson Raffle is in full swing with about a month left until the drawing. We’ll be drawing the winner at 10 pm on Saturday, November 17 at the Corner Pub on West Iles in Springfield while enjoying another evening of blues with Tombstone Bullet.

Please patronize our sponsors (see flyer) and thank them for their continued support of the youth of RYF.
