A note from The Arc of Illinois Board President:
As we enter a season of celebration, be sure to honor the small things that put the joy in
your holiday, because these small things together can make the big things happen.

With the help of The Arc of Illinois, families like mine are networking in ways that allow us
to share creative, personal success stories. More often than not, self-advocates and
families demand more than the status quo offers and generate ideas that create inclusive
opportunities in education, employment, housing and true community living.

I ask you to support The Arc of Illinois as together we harness our creativity in this time of
great uncertainty.  Let’s forge new relationships and rely on one another in unexpected
ways to create meaningful lives for Illinois citizens with intellectual and developmental
disabilities and their families.

Best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a new year filled with peace, progress
and prosperity!

Terri Devine
President, Arc of Illinois
