Our Employment & Community Support Services programs provide preparation training and employment opportunities. We also provide community living options throughout Chicago in diverse neighborhoods, near public transportation and local businesses, for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities.
We have modified our delivery of services as necessary to adhere to social distancing guidelines during the pandemic. Our COVID-19 Resource and Support Guide details the full range of resources and supports we are offering during the pandemic, and other opportunities we have discovered through our peers and networks.
