Serving Individuals with Disabilities since 1965
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...
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!
Signage
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.
