Parklawn School Activity Center

Tel: (708)425-3344
  • Park Lawn was founded in 1955 by a small group of parents who challenged national and state legislature that only provided funding for the education of children deemed "educable." Recognizing untapped potential in their children, these parents were determined to provide opportunities to help them lead active and productive lives.
  • Parents began teaching their children in classroom space donated by a church in Evergreen Park.
  • Other families seeking similar services joined them. Park Lawn is a non-profit organization offering a variety of programs and services for individuals with developmental disabilities.
  • Park Lawn's mission is to provide comprehensive services for people with developmental disabilities and their families.
  • The goal is to promote independence, choice and access to mainstream living.
  • We believe that people with disabilities earnestly wish to live a normal life.
  • They want to go to school, hold a job that truly needs to be done, a place to live comfortably, and they want a full and active social life.
  • Within this context Park Lawn provides adult developmental training, vocational services, supported employment, residential opportunities, and recreational activities. All are backed with professional staff support.
