This Chicago, IL 60612-1026 revolutionary concept of a “Little City” began in 1959 on 56 acres of (773) 265-1539 land in Palatine, Illinois. Little City was designed to empower chil- www.littlecity.org dren and adults through its various programs: to provide education, training, and encouragement, also to enable all of LCF’s participants to accomplish beyond what “experts” thought and become all that they can be. Little City Foundation’s mission is to provide state-of-the-art services that enable children and adults with developmental disabilities, and other emotional, behavioral or medical disabilities, to lead meaning- ful, productive and dignified lives. Little City began as a small and unassuming organization; however, driven by the collective enthu- siasm of its committed founders and their tireless fundraising efforts Little City grew. That intense momentum and the desire to help others still continues on the grounds of Little City Foundation. 10BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF METROPOlITAN CHICAGO BIG BIG OF METROPOlITAN CHICAGO TMLittle Moments.
