LSSI is grateful to the following foundations for their generous grants that support a variety of programming across Illinois.

Helen Brach Foundation presented a check for $10,000 to support the LSSI's Prisoner and Family Ministry, which offers programs like the Storybook Project that helps maintain the parent and child relationship for families affected by incarceration.

The McHenry County Community Foundation awarded a grant of $5,000 to LSSI's Gable Point Senior Housing in Crystal Lake for a music therapy program for residents. Gable Point is one of LSSI's 20 developments throughout Illinois offering low-income apartment style housing for older adults and people over the age of 18 with disabilities.

The Aileen S. Andrew Foundation made a grant of $30,000 for Shady Oaks Day Training Program. Shady Oaks East and West are residences for men and women with developmental disabilities. The Day Training Program is adjacent to the homes for residents. Residents, as well as community members, can attend the program.
