How to Contribute

Read about the many ways that you can help support Avenues:


Why Contribute?

  • Participants live and work in the community. They pay taxes and give back. Each day, nearly 60 people are employed in the community and 150 in a supervised work center with jobs provided by Avenues. Each evening, nearly 75 people return to their Avenues supported homes.
  • Our Directors provide sound financial leadership with a balanced budget and the Avenues Foundation to secure our future.
  • Adults with developmental disabilities are an under-served population. Government support is diminishing, and Illinois ranks 43rd in the nation for spending on DD services. At Avenues we know that the time is right to build on our tradition of private support and diminish our reliance on State funding, which accounts for 62 percent of our revenue.
  • Avenues has received accreditation and the highest commendation possible by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. Avenues is also certified by the Illinois Department of Human Services.
  • More than 86% of all donations received directly fund our our vital programs. That is far above the 60% maximum seen nationally. At Avenues, your gift is used as intended.

When we work together, live side by side, and appreciate our diversity, all our lives are richer.
