Chestnut Health Systems - Our Parent Company
In January 1973, in an old victorian house on Chestnut Street in Bloomington, Illinois, U.S.A. a program known as Project Lighthouse was begun. From that simple beginning, a visionary group of diverse and creative staff helped mold Lighthouse into what is now a highly regarded, sophisticated organization known as Chestnut Health Systems. Chestnut Health Systems is a private, not-for-profit 501 C-3 charitable organization governed by a volunteer Board of Directors.
Chestnut Health Systems offers a comprehensive scope of behavioral health and human services in Illinois, U.S.A.
