Our approach

Orchard Village, founded in Skokie, Illinois in 1972, is a fully licensed nonprofit organization that annually provides support to nearly 300 individuals (all ages) with developmental disabilities in north and northwest Chicagoland.

Our objective is to empower clients to live a fulfilling life in which each individual controls his or her own destiny.
