Mission:
In 1959, a small group of parents shared a dream in which their children with developmental disabilities could live, grow, love and be loved in a warm and nurturing environment. Purchasing 56 acres of farmland in Palatine, Illinois, guided by faith and perseverance, these parents tuned their dream into a reality. In the fall of 1959, Little City opened its doors to 16 children with disabilities.

Today, the organization serves more than 350 children and adults with disabilities throughout the Chicago Metropolitan area.

Little City engages and supports individuals, families and communities to ensure that children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities can realize their unique potential to live safely, learn continuously, explore creatively and work productively.
