Message From The CEO

Dear Shore Friends and Families,

Just like that, summer has quickly come and gone. As the world around us continues to grapple with significant challenges–from COVID-19 surges to devastating wildfires, I have to remind myself to look for the silver lining. For our individuals served, who are no strangers to overcoming considerable obstacles and facing unimaginable circumstances, I often wonder what has been their silver lining? Maybe it was learning to prepare healthier recipes while staying at home or how to use new technology to keep connected with friends and family. Recently, our silver lining at Shore has been seeing clients and staff joyfully return to programming at our centers. Thanks to a generous grant from The Coleman Foundation, our Adult Day Programs are now offering more choices through our New Life in Motion Program, with client-centered schedules and themed rooms designed around their interests. We are thrilled about this program enhancement, which was developed and refined during the pandemic. A silver lining indeed! We had a spectacular evening at our 70th Anniversary Gala on September 9th at the Chicago Botanic Garden. Thanks to our guests, sponsors and supporters, we raised over $100,000 at this momentous occasion. Adding to the excitement of the evening was a $10,000 match opportunity offered by my dear friend June Barnard of The Driskill Foundation. This match was secured during our Fund A Need that was run by Richard Laible, our Master of Ceremonies Thank you to all our friends for your generosity and support of programs and services that brings enjoyment and fulfillment to our clients.

Warm regards,


India Alexis Ehioba, MNA, CFRE
Chief Executive Officer
