About The Douglas Center

Location:

3445 Howard Street, Skokie, IL 60076, US

Mission Statement

At the Douglas Center we are devoted to providing the best possible environment for our developmentally disabled clients to engage in social interaction with others, to receive needed attention and to pursue vocational tasks. Thus, we need the help of dedicated volunteers who are socially interactive and are dedicated to aiding others.

Description

We are a community day services program for adults with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities. We teach daily living skills, social skills, community skills and work skills. We also offer therapies with licensed therapists such as art, dance and pet therapy. Our purpose is to teach the clients to be as independent as they can be.

Volunteers are needed to help in numerous ways ranging from leading activities for the clients (job skills, reading, social skills) to assisting staff with arts, crafts to exercise and music.
