Once Again, That Time of Year
It's Illinois State Budget Season once again.  Time for our annual hoping (not much of that in recent years) and fearing (sadly, with good cause in recent years).  It will be especially harrowing this year with a new Governor in the mix.  Currently, he, the Senate Democrats, and the House Democrats, are a long ways apart on their negotiation positions.  It is very difficult to project what wil...
FY14 Annual Report
Our annual report is now available--just click on the "Documents and Reports" link at the right.  As  you'll see on the first page, please plan to come to SU's 50th Anniversary Party between 4-7 pm on Thursday, May 7, 2015!!!!!
DSP Article
Another great article in The Times, this one on DSP Recognition Week.  One additional thing to note about Ginger--Mandy commented that Ginger enjoys her job so much that sometimes she starts dancing while she's working!
Renner Article
A great article in the Times on Saturday on our Assistant Residential Director Lisa Renner.  We are so lucky to have her here at SU.  
Title VI Notices
On the "Documents and Reports" page we have put up federally required notices for consumers who utilize our transportation services.
On the Radio
Go here to listen to an interview on WSPL.  Sherri Stephens and Ellie Eccleston talk about their work with the people we serve!
We updated the signage on the side of our vans.  We're hoping to generate more paper and hard drive shredding jobs for us.  We really like how it turned out.
Survey Says…
DHS dropped by unannounced for their annual survey of our Developmental Training Program today.  They look at many things:  clinical records, personnel records, safety and human rights committees, policies, site walk-through, staff and consumer interviews, etc.  We got a perfect 100% score this year!!!  Kudos to the SU Team for their dedication and hard work.
Closure Update
Survey analysis from parents/guardians of persons who moved out of the state institution in Jacksonville.  It shows that tremendous fear at the outset of the process led to satisfaction with the outcome. JDC Data Brief
Ranking the States Once Again
Illinois is once again near the bottom of the annual Case for Inclusion Rankings.  Disability Scoop has a short article.  You can get the full report and a lot of state-by-state detail at the main site.  Illinois can do better in supporting people with developmental disabilities!!!

SUCCESS is a service to both businesses and people with disabilities.  True success arises from familiarity.  We get to know the people we serve thoroughly–their skills, talents, interests, and ideal working conditions.  We get to know businesses well by spending time in the environment.  Then we match them up together in a way that is beneficial for both the person and the business.

This challenging economic environment is the perfect time for businesses to avail themselves of our services.  When you’re already in a mode of accommodating external economic conditions you need to be able to make internal adjustments in order to stay efficient and effective.  Consultation from SUCCESS can help you to identify new ways to look at responsibilities and work patterns in your business.  Also, the people we serve can sometimes access funds to support their employment.  This could potentially pay for a piece of equipment your business needs if it gives the person an opportunity for a job.  What makes more sense than seizing an opportunity to bring a good employee into your workplace and also access resources to make your business grow?

Streator Unlimited is an Employment Network under the Ticket to Work Program. We have extensive training in the are of customized employment.

How do I get services?
