The Douglas Center, a non-profit social service agency, provides day programs for individuals with severe developmental, physical and mental disabilities. Our center, located in Skokie, Illinois serves the Chicago metropolitan area and north suburban community. Approximately 46% of our program participants are of race/ethnic minority descent. All of our participants have incomes under $10,400. Thirty per cent of our participants with disabilities are over 65 years of age.

These difficult economic times have placed additional pressures and constraints on delivering the urgent care needed in our community. The tough economic climate and severe Illinois State budget and funding cuts have created an increased need for services within our community and have left us with a greater need for your support.

We ask for your support in assisting us in our commitment to continue to provide the vital programs and services so urgently needed. Your generosity will make a difference in transforming the lives of those affected by disabilities. On behalf of The Douglas Center, our program participants and their families, we thank you for your kindness and generous support.
