On Saturday, June 6th, Garden Center Services will hold its 3rd annual 5k Run (walkers welcome!). This event brings together friends, families, and agency advocates to raise funds that help maintain the daily supports we provide to persons with developmental disabilities. Illinois is currently facing a $70million shortfall in funding for services for people with developmental disabilities, this is in additional to our annual funding gap of $300k for day services alone. Your registration helps us to fill these gaps.
Additionally, NEW THIS YEAR you can pledge to raise at least $250 and get a very special hooded sweatshirt, and know that you've directly impacted our services!

2015 Individual Goals
We asked a few of the people we serve if they would like to share their goals for 2015. Watch the short video below to learn about some of the goals they are working on below. Stay tuned for more goals for 2015!
It's Time to Make Some Noise!
We are now into the second half of FY15 and the outlook is concerning. Currently, projected community appropriations shortfalls for DDD and DMH are $70 million and $40 million respectively. Unless action is taken by our government leaders, community-based provider agencies will feel the impact of budget shortfalls in the forms of cuts and payment delays!
Here are some facts to help you deliver the message...
• There is a $70 million budget shortfall for services supporting persons with developmental disabilities in the community.
• Unless this problem is fixed, individuals and families may lose access to services, and providers could again face crippling payment delays.
• Please work together with your family members and friends to address the budget shortfall and prevent cuts to community care.
