Building Our Future

 On September 26, 2016, Orchard Village officially broke ground for construction of a brand new 5,200 sq. ft. client Activity Center on its Skokie administrative campus. The new structure, planned for completion in summer 2017, features an open, high-ceilinged space appropriate for use as a gym/court, music room, theater, arts studio or other meeting place. The center also includes a complete commercial-style kitchen for staff and client training and use, plus a light-filled, flexible meeting room for use by clients, staff, parents and the Board of Directors.

The new building will serve as “home base” for Orchard Village’s exciting new “Abilities in Motion” therapeutic recreation program while also supporting activities associated with the organization’s other new programming concept, the vocationally-focused alternative day program “InnOVations.” To learn how you can contribute to our capital and programming fundraising campaign in support of these innovations, “Active Pursuits: The Campaign for Client Success,” contact Martin Oliff,, 847-967-1800 ext. 141.
