Life Skills Services

We help people with disabilities develop skills that enhance their independence and quality of life. They can learn cooking, budgeting, hygiene, and more.


At Ray Graham Association (RGA), we know how important it is for your loved one to have a fulfilling and meaningful life. That’s why we offer opportunities for them to learn new skills, make friends, and have fun. They will enjoy cooking, shopping, and exercising with the support of caring staff and volunteers. They can also take part in various classes that match their interests and goals.

The community is our classroom when we volunteer with organizations like Meals on Wheels, Feed My Starving Children, West Suburban Community Pantry, and more. Your loved one will be proud of their contributions and so will we.
