In the state of Illinois, there are over 22,000 people with disabilities waiting for funding for essential services like Wishing Well.

Through private donations, we are able to subsidize costs to our clients by over 50%. We can do better. Our goal is simple: to offer our services for free.

Our small, personal setting featuring a 2:1 client-to-staff ratio provides an unrivaled level of care and attention to our clients, allowing them to build and maintain vital skill sets.

When a person with disabilities turns 22 years of age, he or she is no longer afforded a free and appropriate public education from the state of Illinois. This "aging out" of the public school system leaves parents and/or guardians with difficult decisions to make regarding the continuation of care, learning and enrichment of the lives of their dependents with disabilities.

In 2003, Wishing Well was born out of a necessity to serve these individuals.
