Daily Herald staff report

The Association for Individual Development serves more than 5,400 people with disabilities, mental illness and special needs in facilities located in Batavia, Aurora, Yorkville and Elgin.

People from the AID Batavia Center met Tuesday morning with representatives from Batavia MainStreet to discuss their partnership, and clients from AID later went out to perform maintenance on flower pots in downtown Batavia. The group has been taking care of about 18 flower pots three times a week, according to AID staff member Marvina Toweh.

"This is the first year we have done this and we are really enjoying it," she said.

For 50 years, AID has provided services to individuals who have developmental, physical and/or mental disabilities, those who have suffered a trauma or those at risk.
