Thursday, May 29, 2014, LaGrange Park - Helping Hand Center is opening the doors to its newest residential home in LaGrange Park where seven people with developmental disabilities will call home.
One of the ways Helping Hand Center fulfills their mission, of assisting persons with disabilities to achieve their highest level of independence, is through providing homes in the local community. Here, people with disabilities can fully integrate into the community where they both live and work.
After purchasing the home in LaGrange Park in summer 2013, renovations were recently completed. Thanks to the generous gift from Dr. Asok K. Ray of the Indima Foundation and many other supporters of Helping Hand Center, this home has been realized less than one year later.
Helping Hand Center has 12 group homes in the local community where over 80 people with developmental disabilities live. The local nonprofit, located in Countryside, Illinois serves 650 children and adults with developmental disabilities.
