Join Libenu Clients for a Day or Night Out
Join Libenu on a number of inclusive community outings each month! Our clients regularly enjoy going to fun activities in Chicago such as Lincoln Park Zoo, The Botanic Gardens, Ravinia, Loyola Beach, the movie theater, Old Orchard, Webber Center in Skokie, and dinner at a multitude of kosher restaurants. Contact us to find out how to attend an upcoming event, or to help plan an inclusive community activity!
Many adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities are either unemployed or underemployed. Adults with disabilities face multiple barriers to employment, the most problematic of which is the erroneous assumption that they cannot do the job. In fact, adults with disabilities bring unique talents, determination, and a strong work ethic to their places of employment. People with disabilities have a lower rate of absenteeism and a higher sense of job satisfaction when compared to their typical peers. They deserve the opportunity for greater self-sufficiency through gainful employment.
Do you own a business or have a job available? Are you an innovative, forward-thinking entrepreneur? Consider one of our clients as your next employee. Check out this article to learn more about the benefits of hiring adults with disabilities.
In order for adults with special needs to live independent, fulfilling lives, they must have vocational options that are appropriate, purposeful, and sustainable. To find ways to employ a Libenu client, Contact Shana.
