Friedman Place offers a wide variety of activities and outings for our residents all year round, but Summer is always busiest as there are so many opportunities for outdoor fun! In addition to our daily activities and special guests or performers inside our building we take residents to many destinations in the Chicago area. Volunteers are almost always needed to accompany residents and help them navigate their destination.
Our first trip of the Summer was one of our most popular – Six Flags Great America in Gurnee. A group of staff, residents and volunteers spent the day on easy rides like the Carousel to some of the scariest of roller coasters. They all returned with big smiles on their faces!
We have several other adventures planned for this Summer and more may be added to the calendar for late July and August. You can always check with our Activities and Volunteers Department directly to find out if anything has been added. Call Beth Elman at 773-409-6123 or email firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
