Little City


The Resnick Family Foundation proudly supports Little City


Established in 1959, Little City was founded by a group of parents who dreamed of a revolutionary environment for their children
who “experts” often said should be institutionalized. Today, Little City is a vital, vibrant community offering a comprehensive scope
of services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Our founding principles along with a therapeutic community approach, continue to guide our programs and services for children and
adults of all ages, enabling Little City to create hope, change lives and challenge the limits placed on individuals with disabilities.

Our nonprofit includes a 56-acre campus in Palatine with a choice of housing, programming and educational options as well as a foster care
placement office in Chicago. We recently added the Duffey Family Children’s Village of state-of-the-art group homes for children and doubled
our square footage and capacity of its ChildBridge Center for Education.
