Community Support Services opens new academy
BROOKFIELD – Community Support Services opened a new integrated learning center last week that will provide people with disabilities a range of classes similar to what a park district might offer.
The CSS Academy, located at 3732 Grand Blvd., is housed in a renovated 4,000-square-foot facility containing two classrooms separated by a soundproof wall. The academy is the first of its kind for CSS, which serves more than 700 individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities and their families. CSS clients live in 57 communities in western Cook and eastern DuPage counties.
"For our current clients, it's going to be a great place to go after they've finished high school,” said Michelle Jimenez, CSS’ vice president of development and marketing. “It's really targeted at age 22 or higher for individuals with disabilities who want continuous learning after they finish high school."
