Biography

The mission at Sertoma Centre is “to provide opportunities that empower individuals with disabilities to achieve personal success.”

Every day at Sertoma this mission is accomplished by those with developmental, physical, emotional disabilities and /or mental illness. Some of this success is major – like starting a job in the community or moving into their own apartment.

Other successes may seem minor to others, but to an individual with disabilities, getting dressed by oneself, learning how to make change at a vending machine, or mastering a new task in the workshop is a meaningful personal success!

For an individual with disabilities, each one of these victories represents another step in his/her own personal path toward greater independence and participation in their community. Sertoma Centre, Inc. has built its reputation on the many personal victories of the people it serves.

A non-profit agency, Sertoma Centre, Inc. is headquartered in Alsip, a south suburb of Chicago, Illinois. Based upon its reputation and achievements, individuals residing in parts of Chicago and its south and southwest suburban region receive the services provided by the Centre.

Notes

We’ve worked with Laura Gardner, the volunteer services coordinator at Sertoma Centre. She is an incredibly friendly, helpful person and has gone out of her way to create meaningful service opportunities for our students. She is best reached by e-mail, as she is a part-time employee at the Sertoma Centre, but she responds very quickly. As a direct service opportunity, we highly recommend the Sertoma Centre.
