Who We Are

Futures Unlimited, Inc. has been meeting the needs of business, industry and community for over 45 years as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation under the laws of the State of Illinois.  Our mission is to assist individuals in Livingston County as they achieve independence and develop the skills needed to live and work successfully in their community.

Our History

In the mid 1960's, a group of Livingston County Parents initiated an effort to establish work and training opportunities for adults with a variety of physical, developmental and mental disabilities.  In July of 1970, the Pontiac Chamber of Commerce organized a Board of Directors and Futures Unlimited, Inc. was established.  

By the summer of 1971, there were sixteen (16) persons working at the center and learning new independent living skills.  Futures would later relocate in 1979 to their present site on Torrance Avenue.

In the ensuing years, hundreds of people throughout Livingston County have built Futures into a comprehensive training center with twelve distinct programs serving over 350 persons per year.  Futures began with a few employees and a modest budget of about $30,000.  Futures Unlimited now employs 124 staff with an annual operating budget of $4,891,974.  We serve children and adults with developmental disabilities, mental illness, autism, seizure disorders, drug and alcohol abuse disorders, traumatic brain injuries and another of other conditions that make it challenging for them to live and work independently.
