Holiday shutdown

We will be doing a Holiday shutdown again this year. Our last day of operations before the holidays will be 12/22/17 and we will reopen as usual on 1/2/18. You might see some activity during that week at our Torrance Ave site due to Production or Administrative needs but our offices and Developmental Training Programs at the main building and satellite sites will be closed.

From all of us to all of you, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Mark your calendars...

FUI begins gofundme Campaign

Click here to go to our gofundme campaign: Building OUR Futures

"Building OUR Futures; One Brick at a Time"

Futures Unlimited was founded in 1970 to serve individuals with disabilities develop the skills needed to live and work successfully in their community.  Futures provides vocational training, job placement, community supports, home based support services, community integrated living arrangements,  job coaching, supported employment and  life skills training to over 380 individuals annually within Livingston County. We have a transportation system of 27 vehicles that log over 280,000 miles a year.

After nearly a decade without any increase from the State of Illinois and the lack of a complete State Budget, help is needed to maintain our buildings and replace equipment. This has forced us to make drastic cuts in programs, staffing, and other expenses not critical to our mission. After years of temporary fixes, funds are needed to replace the roof on our vocational building that provides job training and contract work to many. Our production equipment, like our forklift, is outdated and needs to be replaced. Agency vehicles that are over 14 years old need to be replaced to provide a safe transportation system to and from work for some of our individuals. There have been many items on the "wish" list for years that remain incomplete because we continue to wait on funds to make the necessary repairs.

With your help, we will be able to make the needed repairs and replacements to our buildings and equipment. By providing a donation, you continue to help us enhance the lives of individuals with disabilities by providing a safe work and learning environment.
We are extremely grateful to all the individuals who support our agency and our mission. Together we can continue to "Build our Future" at Futures Unlimited, One Brick at a Time.
