Message From The CEO



Shore friends and family,

The holidays are near, and we at Shore send our warmest wishes to you and yours for a safe and joyful season! Each year, we are gratefully overwhelmed by our generous donors, volunteers, staff, board, and advocates in the community who help make Shore what it is today. Without them, we could not provide the quality care and individualized services for our over 400 clients with developmental and intellectual disabilities.

As a supporter, you have a considerable impact on our clients, like Robin, who has thrived as a resident of Shore’s Buehler Home for the past six years. Since joining the Shore family, she has become more confident and independent with the job training, socialization, and daily living support she receives at Shore.

“Shore takes good care of me,” said Robin. “They take me places that I love to go, such as drama class and bowling—I am developing a social life with friends from other places.”

While much of our Shore family has been with us for decades, we are continuously adapting to change. And, now, more than ever, we need your help.

The needs of our clients and our community have evolved. The costs to offer our daily programs and services are ever rising as government funding remains stagnant.

Your gift to our Annual Campaign is vital to filling this gap and ensuring the livelihood of our clients, many of whom are among society’s most vulnerable members: individuals with severe to profound disabilities. Your gift gives them the opportunity to live fulfilled and meaningful lives whether it be through learning a critical skill, obtaining employment, volunteering in the community, living independently, or simply going out with friends. Your gift makes a life-changing difference.

Please donate to Shore today, and help sustain the future of our clients as we give and grow together.

Yours in grateful appreciation,


India Alexis Ehioba, MNA, CFRE
Chief Executive Officer
(847) 982-2030 ext. 215
