Carrissia

Our son came to Rimland ten years ago. Our family has watched him thrive with the care and support from the Rimland staff. I feel we are one big family and I am grateful for the support I have received.

A Taste of Rimland at Nico Osteria!

Rimland has partnered with two fantastic Chicago organizations to celebrate the culinary gifts of one of our clients. Doors Open Dishes is a unique initiative that pairs individuals with disabilities with chefs at local restaurants across Chicago. Gold Coast standout Nico Osteria is one of Chicago’s premiere Italian restaurants. Doors Open Dishes engaged Nico Osteria’s chef de cuisine, Bill Montage, to meet and work with Rimland client and cooking enthusiast Carrissia to create a dish inspired by Carrissia’s favorite ingredients and flavors. The experience was captured in this video and the dish they created is currently on the menu at Nico Osteria! Throughout the month of November, visit Nico Osteria during lunchtime hours to taste the delicious dish that Chef Bill and Carrissia have created while supporting adults with autism. Nico Osteria will be donating proceeds from sales of the dish to Rimland! Are you hungry yet? We’ll see you in November at Nico Osteria!
