    We are currently seeking professionals to join our board of directors.  We are looking for those with expertise in areas such as accounting, event coordination, facilities management, fundraising, law, marketing, public relations, real estate, school administration, and strategic planning. No qualification, however, is more important than a commitment to individuals with developmental disabilities.

    For more information, please contact Joy Decker, Executive Director, at 312.243.6097, x 114.
