Located on the northwest side of Chicago, Friedman Place is a nonprofit residential community that serves adults aged 22 and up who are disabled and blind. Each resident lives in his or her own apartment – there are 81 in the building – with a full bathroom and kitchenette. The building is specially designed for people with visual impairments such as special lighting; changes in floor textures; high-contrast paint colors; handrails; and “talking” elevators so residents may move about safely and freely while at home.
Staff, specially trained to work with adults with visual impairments, provides social work and nursing services; housekeeping; meals; and a variety of programs and activities fitting resident needs and interests. All services promote integrated physical, mental and social health so residents lead as full and as independent lives as possible. The agency has 65 employees and 100 volunteers and is led by a volunteer board of directors.
