Message From The CEO



It’s April and in Chicagoland, that means sunshine, rain and maybe a little snow. But April is also a “Blue” month not because of the weather but because it is Autism Awareness Month.

The national and international awareness of Autism and of the individuals diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum has a wonderful effect of shining the light of awareness on all types of developmental and intellectual challenges.

I’d like to thank our donors, supporters and friends for being the bright lights shining and making extraordinary things happen in the lives of over 400 individuals throughout Chicago and the North Shore.

Every gift at every level makes a difference. Here are some of the ways your gift helps:

$50 – Will support a weekend full of community activities for the residents at one of our group homes.

$100 – Will cover the cost of a developmental therapy session for one child, for one week.

$500 – Will cover the cost for a week’s worth of community employment training.

$1,000 – Will cover the cost for 1 month of ADA Para Transit transportation for 8 individuals to attend one of our day programs.

$100,000 – Could sponsor community engagement and training opportunities for 90 individuals for an entire year!

The joy of giving is even greater when you can see the impact because YOU are the light of our past, present and future. Keep shining!

Warm regards,



India Alexis Ehioba, MNA, CFRE
