People supported at Ray Graham Association have much more than a place to live—they have a home. Over 150 people with disabilities flourish in our 25+ community-based homes that promote independence and foster friendship. Accessible houses are available for people with mobility needs. We provide each person with the chance to be a part of their community and to make every day enjoyable and meaningful. Whether working at their job, volunteering in their community, or learning new life skills at our Community Learning Centers, those we support have greater control of their lives.
We currently operate over 25 (and counting!) community-based homes and apartments throughout neighborhoods in DuPage County, most of which offer 24-hour support. Each home is a reflection of the men or women who live there and features multiple bedrooms, baths, kitchen, dining area, and family room. Team members support people with daily tasks like cooking, cleaning, shopping, and hygiene. Sometimes referred to as CILAs (Community Integrated Living Arrangements), Ray Graham Association points out that that term refers to a funding source. The people who live in Ray Graham Association residences do not call them CILAs—they are at home.
