Shore Community Services works to improve life for people with disabilities

SKOKIE, Ill. (WLS) -- A nonprofit that helps people with intellectual and developmental disabilities recently celebrated 70 years of service.

Shore Community Services is based in Skokie. They offer all kinds of programs, from job training to life skills.

"We offer programs, in a nutshell, to help anyone with a disability live as independently as possible," said India Ehioba.

One client, Cindy Hogg, recently celebrated her 30th anniversary. She started off in the residency program and received job skills.

Hogg now lives independently in a condo, and receives help as needed from Shore.

"Shore has been helping me through everything, with my ups and downs," said Hogg. "It it wasn't for Shore, I don't know where I would have been in my life."

Shore's goal is to help people live as independently as they can for as long as they can.
