We invite you to join us.
For more than 30 years, Progress Center has provided people with disabilities with the tools and resources to be independent in their own communities. We invite you to be a sponsor of this event. At the Gala on October 24, we will celebrate the success and history of Progress Center. We have much to celebrate. In the past year, Progress Center has:
- Built a Youth Transition Program
- Expanded our Personal Assistant Recruitment and Referral Program
- Organized a new Peer Support and Art Group
- Launched an Employment Club
- Joined a coalition working to put 43 people with disabilities and their families into homeownership
In addition to celebrating our own work, we will honor the work of individuals and organizations that are making a difference in the disability community.
This year, Progress Center will honor:
The Illinois Telecommunications Access Corporation
Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul
Disability Rights Attorney Andres Gallegos of Robbins, Salomon & Patt, Ltd
Univision Anchor Enrique Rodriguez will serve as the Event EmCee.
