For the first time in 2 years we will be hosting an in-person event! Join us Friday, September 23rd at 7pm at the Ravinia Green Country Club in Riverwoods, IL for a lovely evening of cocktails, dinner, and live entertainment. This year's event will support the following impact areas:

  • Next Generation Day Services (NGS). This program has set the standard for meaningful, activity-driven, community-based programming.  Participants engage in volunteerism, attend fitness classes, explore the arts, and frequent local parks, libraries, and museums.  NGS currently operates out of two locations in Highland Park and Glenview, with plans to expand to Mundelein in 2022.
  • Community Employment. This program provides job-preparedness, job placement, and job coaching services to our program participants.  Beyond initial job placement, our staff also provides ongoing on-the-job supports to ensure participants have long-term success in their positions. 
  • Recreational Enrichment. A balanced life in the community includes taking advantage of all the things life can offer!  From park district memberships to mini golf and the Lake County Fair, recreational activities provide food, fun, and friendship to adults with disabilities.

Help support people with disabilities to imagine their best life, explore the opportunities around them, and connect with their communities!
