Take Me Out To The Ballgame!!

The Alpha Phi Omega Service Fraternity, based at the University of Illinois, hosted 11 Individuals and 5 staff to a Chief’s baseball game in Peoria and lunch. This event came about because of Avalon Dittmer, who is an APO sister and a seasonal DSP at Streator Unlimited/Kent. Avalon indicated that she wanted to do something nice for the Individuals and introduce her APO brother and sisters to the Individuals who have come to mean so much to her. The Individuals and staff had an amazing day with Avalon and APO. Judy Whitney indicated that the Avalon and her friends made everyone feel special and made time to talk with each one of them. The game picked up in the fifth inning with the Chiefs winning 7 to 5. Thank you Avalon and APO!!! We had an AWESOME time.

They Deserve More Campaign. Let Your State Senators Know You Support This, And That They Should Too!

Senate Bill 3508 would increase the wages of the SU staff who do the truly important direct care. We’ve had great staff who love working with the people we serve who have had to leave to make living wages, which is awful for everyone. Please encourage your State Senator to support this critical bill.

What does Nathan’s DSP mean to him and his family? It means his mother can be reassured that Nathan is loved and cared for when she is not present. Rosa provides comfort to Nathan’s family because his mother can see how genuinely happy Nathan is in his group home. #TheyDeserveMore
Act today because Nathan deserves more. Write a note via email to your Illinois state senator urging them to YES on SB 3508 to ensure DSP like Rosa earn a living wage: http://www.theydeservemore.com/take-action
