Clearbrook Needs You!
Clearbrook is the largest provider of home and community based services in Illinois, serving over 8,000 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We have launched our advocacy network to help the 8,000+ individuals we serve and all other individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Illinois maximize their independence, enrich their lives, and embrace their potential.
Make your voice heard!
We need your help to make sure that the Illinois General Assembly prioritizes the issues that affect our community. Currently, Illinois ranks 47th among states when it comes to spending on intellectual and developmental disability services, leaving more than 14,000 individuals on a waiting list to receive essential services. Additionally, 30% of all Direct Service Professional (DSP) positions remain unfilled and those same workers have a 54.5% turnover rate due to low and stagnant wages. Clearbrook and other similar agencies are dependent on government funding for the vast majority of our budget so it is crucial that we communicate the needs of the intellectual and developmental disability community to the Illinois state legislature.
