Rimland is pleased to announce a new partnership with the organization Connections for the Homeless. Connections for the Homeless is an Evanston-based non-profit that supports individuals and families that are homeless or are threatened with homelessness. The goal of our partnership is to connect individuals seeking employment with opportunities at Rimland. We see this as a way to strengthen the community in a mutually beneficial way, since Rimland provides opportunities for employment and full job training. Connections for the Homeless assists more than 800 individuals and families each year through the efforts of over 5,000 staff, supporters, and volunteers.

Like so many other parents who have disabled adult children, I started to visit various agencies and came across Rimland. Although letting my daughter live somewhere else was maybe the hardest choice in my life, I knew it was the best decision for her. Within the first day she was with Rimland, she adjusted so well. Every time I visit her at her group home, she is smiling and happy. I can never thank Rimland enough for the kind loving care they provide.
