Annual Appeal - #GivingTuesday 2022

Your support and generosity have helped make an impactful difference in the lives of over 400 individuals with intellectual disabilities. Your gift provided multiple resources for each person to actively engage in the community by living, working, volunteering, or enjoying leisure activities.
We achieve our goals and fulfill our mission because of friends like you. Last year, we successfully helped over 300 individuals secure services and support to address their needs through our Home Based Services program. Through this program, our Self-Direction Assistants help individuals and their families navigate through systems such as Medicaid, Social Security benefits, community day service placement, and behavior therapy, to name a few.
For the last 36 years, our Supported Employment Program staff have worked tirelessly to find employment for individuals with intellectual disabilities. So many of our program participants have benefitted from this program and have found a sense of accomplishment and pride when reporting for work. For our participants, having a job means growth, responsibility, increased confidence levels and a sense of identity. They meet new people, contribute to businesses both small and large while building and strengthening their job skills.
COMING SOON TO A COMMUNITY NEAR YOU!
Park Lawn Community Day Services
17007 S Oak Park Ave, Tinley Park and 6101 W 107th Street, Chicago Ridge
There are numerous steps involved when opening a new building. Complete renovations must adhere to ADA compliance. Items like program and conference room furniture, storage cabinets, landscaping and signage, office and enrichment supplies need to be purchased and we must pass the Department of Human Services certification to obtain our license to operate day programming within these buildings.
We hope you will be a part of our future and consider a year-end gift to Park Lawn. Your support of our Choice program will help us succeed in our new locations. It is essential that each person is supported according to their needs and it’s important to sustain the programs and services that give our participants the resources they need to reach their goals and enjoy a happy and fulfilling life. Thank you.
