our blogStories from Little City
From graduating District 211’s transition program, enrolling in Harper College’s Career Skills Institute and even joining the school’s wind symphony as a trombone player, Josh has always set goals and worked to accomplish them.
After years of cancellations as a result of the pandemic, two of Little City’s premier events had incredibly successful returns with the Annual Gala and LCI Golf Classic bringing hundreds of supporters together to support people with developmental disabilities.
The participants at Lakeside Center moved to a new home this week as programming officially started at the new facility. From the outset, the Grayslake location offers a more welcoming and warm greeting to participants and visitors, boasting a beautiful brick exterior and nestled in a community of surrounding businesses.
Little City would like to give a HUGE congratulations to Terri Nelles who was recently recognized as the Certified Employment Support Professional of the Year by the Association of People Supporting Employment First during its annual conference in Denver. Terri, who has been advocating for and helping people with developmental disabilities find community employment for more than 30 years, stood out among hundreds of other job coaches around the nation to win the prestigious award.
Support our efforts to create opportunities for all.
