Anixter Center’s mission is to provide an array of services and support to help people with disabilities and related challenges live, learn, work, and play in the community. Located in Highland Park, the agency’s Adult Community Transition (ACT) program helps facilitate the transition of young adults with developmental disabilities from their safe, nurturing school environments to life in the broader community. This is accomplished through individualized employment and volunteer opportunities, case management, educational activities, socialization, and recreational activities developed to maximize their independence, giving these adults “the ability to soar.” The Foundation’s grant was used to fund art therapy for young adults with developmental disabilities who reside in Highland Park and Highwood.
