On April 16, 2019, Clearbrook was chosen to receive a $6,600 donation from 100WomenWhoCare -- Medinah Chapter. A generous donor has offered to match their gift, bringing the total contribution to $13,200.

Their kind contribution will benefit Clearbrook's Respite and DT Senior Programs. The Respite Programs, also known as Take a Break Volunteer Programs, are an innovative service that provide families of children with developmental delays regularly scheduled time away from parental responsibilities. The DT Senior Program, or Activities and Creative Experience for Seniors (ACES), works to enhance the quality of life for its participants by providing activities designed to meet the unique needs of seniors impacted by intellectual or developmental disabilities.

Clearbrook would like to thank Linda Riley, Linda Colander, Peggi D'Angelo, and Peggy Horvath, as well as the whole 100WomenWhoCare -- Medinah Chapter for their generous gift and support.

For more information about the programs and services Clearbrook provides, please contact Juliann Carlson at 847.385.5374 or jcarlson@clearbrook.org.
