Glenkirk provides quality, lifetime supports and services that empower over 500 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities annually to participate fully in all areas of community life.

We are united in the belief that communities are made better when every citizen has the chance to participate.

Our comprehensive services include residential, day and employment services, as well as medical, behavioral and home-based support services. 

  • Over 160 people participate in our residential services program, which offer customized supports for individuals to live as independently in the community as possible.

  • Day services programs serve over 200 individuals every day and offer individuals a broad menu of services and supports focused on their personal needs and interests.

  • More than 70 people participate in our employment services which provide employment opportunities at our small business enterprises and employers in the community.

Altogether we have 45 program locations in 10 communities throughout Cook and Lake Counties in Illinois.

All of our services are based on the principles of community inclusion and self-advocacy.
