Six individuals with developmental disabilities now have a new place to call home. Tazewell County Resource Centers, Inc. is happy to announce that its sixth residential facility has officially opened.
TCRC received a grant in late 2007 from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, to build this new CILA (Community Integrated Living Arrangement). TCRC was one of only four organizations in Illinois to receive a HUD grant that year. Molly Anderson, Vice- President of Residential Services, shared her feelings about the new home, “TCRC is very fortunate to have an opportunity such as this to be able to provide quality community housing for individuals with disabilities.”
Cottonwood CILA is located in East Peoria, in the Cottonwood Estate subdivision just off of Muller Road. It is a specially designed, handicapped accessible ranch-style home with six bedrooms, roll-in showers, spacious living areas, and many other amenities that TCRC always provides for its residential clients with developmental disabilities.
“The agency is very proud of the fact that this project has had a positive impact on the area economy, especially during these uncertain times,” states Ron Hale, TCRC’s President and CEO. “First, a local company secured the construction contract and they in turn put area building professionals to work on the facility. Second, TCRC now has more employment opportunities to offer those in our community.” Staff openings are still available at the CILA and interested parties should contact TCRC Human Resources at (309) 925-2061 or apply online at www.tcrcorg.com.
An Open House is being planned for the spring.
Tazewell County Resource Centers, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit social service agency serving children and adults with developmental disabilities and visual impairments in central Illinois.
