Search provide a complete range of quality, personalized services to over 500 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities each year. We believe that communities are made better when every citizen has the chance to participate.

Our comprehensive services include supported living arrangements, adult learning and employment programs, as well as medical, behavioral, and therapeutic services.

· Over 180 people participate in our residential services, which offer customized supports for individuals to live as independently in the community as possible.

· Adult learning programs serve 400 individuals every day and feature a broad menu of curriculum based services such as life skills training, continuing education, seniors programs, and more.

· More than 100 people participate in employment opportunities provided by our small business enterprises and employers in the community.

· Altogether we have 38 program locations in seven communities throughout Cook and Lake Counties in Illinois.

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