Happy Summer!

We hope you and your family are enjoying these last summer days.

We love sharing how the individuals served have been busy getting outside, volunteering, exploring possible jobs, and creating art for fun!

Life In Motion - Your Choice Program at the Lois Lloyd Center

l. to r. Ashley, Lori and William have a great time walking laps at the Lois Lloyd Center. They are focused on keeping up with each other to stay fit.

l. to r. Leslie and Emilie have big grins during their laps around the Lois Lloyd Center, they stop to say hello, but not for long!


Go, Holly, go! She is moving quickly on her walk and enjoying every minute of it.

Isabel happily enjoys her "after walk" lunch and drink.

Of course, Diosley is all smiles during his walk!

More Successful Job Placements

Shore's Employer of the Year, Club Demonstration Services (CDS), is committed to partnering with us. That's why we are excited to announce that they have hired two more talented individuals to their team, all of whom have received job coaching from our Supported Employment Program at the Koenig Center.

Shore Outings Bring Fun and Foster Independence

At Shore, we love Dengeos! Sam and Michael enjoyed a summer dinner delicious burgers, fries and drinks. They proudly ordered and paid for their food independently. They had a fun evening.

*Sam and Michael are regulars at Dengeos!

Sam is happy to pay for his meal and Michael waits patiently for his change after paying on his own.

Sam and Michael spent another August afternoon buying pizza at the local Skokie Mart and picking their own snacks - as you can see below, they love their independence and had a blast!

Michael enjoys shopping around and picking out his favorite pizza, snacks, and drinks - and pays for them himself.

Sam picked his pizza out too and is excited to pay for it on his own.

Back at Brown house, they prepare their pizza and enjoy it together - delicious!

Summerfest at the Koenig Center - A Huge Success!

Richard, Joyce, John, William, Mark, and Hamad enjoy their lunch together at the Koenig Center's Summerfest. They loved chatting, eating and spending time together on this perfect summer day.

Ranata, John (standing in back), Isabel, DJ Tony, and Patrick enjoy dance music while moving to the beat!

l. to r. Allen, Than Than, and Sam enjoy delicious hot dogs, chips and soda.


Mary and Matthew enjoy the music, sunshine and delicious food together.

From l. to r. Hepolito, Terry, Philip, Nancy, and Jerry enjoy a beautiful day outside together in the sunshine.

Shore's Supported Living Arrangements allow individuals to live independently and maintain a strong sense of community.

Manicure Fun at Shore's Lois Lloyd Center

What to do on a cloudy summer day? Make it a spa day! Isabel, Emilie and Lorraine have a blast getting manicures and keeping each other company while their nails dry.

Emilie and Lorraine patiently soak their nails to start things off.

The finished product is beautiful!


We had a special guest Dale Hallerberg from Dynasty Percussion who visited the Lois Lloyd Center to display his drum class performance and let us all enjoy drumming!
