Serving Individuals with Disabilities since 1965
New Federal Rules on Subminimum Wage
There is a building nationwide movement to end subminimum wage, or "piece-rate," as you may have heard it phrased.   New Federal rules make it much more difficult for a person to be paid in such a manner.  Though a person can enter our programs in the same way as they always have, they'll need to obtain a lot of documentation in order to be paid by piece rate. We have mixed feelings about thi...
Slightly older news, but a first-time mention in this paper.   Our focus is always our mission to serve adults with disabilities, but we do so many small things that impact the community that is so supportive of us.
SU received a statewide recognition award.  We are very proud of our achievements!
Budget Season, Such as it is here in Illinois
UW Findings The Illinois United Way put out a survey of the impact of the budget impasse here in Illinois.  Simply put, it has been horrific.  As for the impact on SU, it has been thankfully minimal.  Because of court orders we have continued to be paid for our services.  The only thing that hasn't been paid has been our janitorial contract at the Illinois State Police Headquarters in LP. ...

Article on State Budget
SU was mentioned in a state budget article.  They mention the DON score.  That doesn't not have a direct impact on SU's funding from the state.  It does impact some of the people who live on their own or with family who receive services through the Division of Rehabilitation Services Home Services Program though.  Still, we find this uncharted state budget territory to be nerve-wracking, even ...
Happy October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month!  Work/Employment is a major part of what we do at SU.  We have work on-site for our consumers in our workshop, from the powder coat paint line to washing totes to packaging and dip tubes.  We support people off-site, at the LaSalle State Police Headquarters and US Foods.  Consumers work in the community in a variety of Streator bus...
Annual State of the States Report
The annual State of the States Report is ready.  If you look at the state scorecard link, Illinois sadly remains near the bottom at 47.  There doesn't appear to be any discussion in Springfield about how to get our rating to a place that reflects the great state we are.
Criminal Justice
A great article on the interaction of learning/developmental disabilities and the criminal justice system.  We at SU have supported people though such issues.  We can have an incredible impact on a person's life by helping them stay out of jail or prison and become independent, self-supporting tax-payers.  If you're a state faced with difficult funding decisions based on lack of resources, this...
Survey Says
We added the 2015 state survey of our day and residential programs to our Documents and Reports page.  We were pleased to have scores of 97% and 99%.  These are unannounced surveys.  The day program is surveyed every year while the residential program is surveyed every 3 years.  We live the rules and do our best every day so don't mind them being unannounced, other than carving the time out of...

Secure Document Destruction

Posted By: admin on January 20, 2012 in - Comments: No Comments »

Work is incredibly important to the people with disabilities whom we serve.  For some it’s an important source of income when they are not yet able to achieve community employment; for most it gives a sense of pride and self-worth.  We do our best to have a wide variety of jobs available so that our consumers can experience a wide variety of jobs.  This helps them to learn what they like and don’t like as as well as where their talents are best utilized.  Another important part about the jobs we do is that money we bring in from them not only pays our consumers’ wages, but also helps pay to support their services.  We have staff who coach on jobs, case managers who plan services and help make sure they have stable living conditions and access to healthcare.  We create opportunities to be a part of the community, whether through attending events, going on recreational outings or simply going out to dinner.  If you use our shredding services, you don’t just get a quality service, you also help people become more independent,lead better lives, and  be less dependent on government benefits.
