Equally Different Inc.

Equally Different Inc. strives to help families who have members with autism find the supports that work best for their family by offering financial scholarships towards practical therapies and supports that are not otherwise covered by insurance. Many families look to try summer camps, art and music therapies, social skills groups and the like only to find that many therapeutic programs are not covered by insurance and are expensive, often prohibitively so. Equally Different wants to help. Knowing that even one child with autism was able to join a program, attend a class, pay part of the cost of getting a service dog or attend a summer camp that allows them to make progress, conquer challenges and most of all feel included and accepted would make the family behind Equally Different, who have four children, two with autism so proud. Your support will help them achieve that goal and help as many families as possible.
We opened our doors on May 16, 2021, and could not be more thrilled to be able to serve families – and give the community a place to serve! Now that we are open, we are offering FREE educational, therapeutic, and career building programs to individuals with Down syndrome, their families, and the community. We hope to become a safe place were all are welcome, from pre-natal diagnosis to adults! Our goal is to empower individuals with Down syndrome and their families to reach their highest potential. GiGi’s Playhouse’s research-based curricula work towards advancing literacy, math skills, gross and fine motor skills, improving low muscle tone, building self-esteem, preparing for the workforce, and more, while fostering acceptance, awareness and networking resources for parents, siblings and the community – all FREE of charge.

Streator Unlimited

Streator Unlimited has been helping people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
since 1965. It serves 90+ people per year in its day program, workshop, community
employment, epilepsy, service facilitation, apartments and residential programs. Fundraising
helps create opportunities for the people it serves which they wouldn’t have otherwise. It also
helps keep the workshop program running since the State of Illinois eliminated funding for that
service in 2012. SU has been recognized for excellence by being named a customized
employment pilot project by the state, being awarded funding to provide epilepsy services on
a regional basis, and accolades ranging from local awards to national accreditation.
Achievements aside, it’s the small, unremarkable things we do each and every day with
dedication that make the difference in peoples’ lives. We truly appreciate your support of our
