Celebrating Independence Every Day of the Year


Avenues was founded in 1953 when a group of parents believed things should be different for their sons and daughters with developmental disabilities. They wanted them to be a part of the community, close to home, among family and friends. Remaining in the community wasn’t always easy, but it was what everyone wanted. Today, thanks to their vision, Avenues is a non-profit organization that provides homes, jobs and community living programs to Chicago area adults with physical, intellectual, and other developmental disabilities.

A Far Reaching Responsive Website

The Avenues to Independence website and mobile redesign included important changes to make the website easier to navigate for users (especially on the go) and for the Avenues staff to manage, as well as simplifying the donation process.
