Thank you for supporting RCL and the special needs clients we serve!


On behalf of the RCL Board of Directors, I would like to welcome you to our 22nd annual, but 1st ever Virtual Gala! During this unique and challenging time the world is faced with, we first want to wish you good health as we hope you are all well and staying safe. We also want to thank you for still being here to support us through such trying times.

– Matthew J. Steward, President RCL Board of Directors


Resources for Community Living’s goal has always been “Helping Adults with Special Needs Live Independently”. We support adults with DD so they may achieve more active and fulfilling lives. We are person-centered, we teach life skills, and provide social outlet opportunities for our clients. Your generous contributions to our Derby Gala will help fund the rehab of the 6-flat building in Palatine we’ve purchased to house 10 clients! Please join our online auction by visiting the Greater Giving website listed below. We’ll see you in the Winner’s Circle!


Customized housing opportunities within our community for persons with disabilities.

Contact us for how you and your business can get involved.
