When you, a family member or friend have a question about living with an intellectual or developmental disability, where do you turn? If you are receiving this card, it is because The Arc of Illinois has touched your life in some way. You might have received resources, family support, advocacy or training from dedicated compassionate professionals, many of whom are also parents.
In the past year, the programs of The Arc of Illinois have guided over 20,000 families in their quest for a full life. From its inception, The Arc of Illinois' Assistive Technology Fund has given over 730 iPads and other devices to individuals who could not communicate prior.
During this very difficult and uncertain time, your donation will offer resources that are directed to current needs, opportunities, and efforts to fulfill our vital mission. Also, The Arc can make your holiday gift giving easy. Think about gifting a membership to The Arc of Illinois to a friend or loved one.
One of the real joys of the holiday season is the opportunity to say Thank You and to wish you the very best for the new year.
