Plain and simple, Jobs75 is focused on securing 75 full or part time jobs for individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) in 2012.

Within 365 days will you be 1 of the 1000's of Illinois employers to offer an opportunity to positively impact the life of 75 work ready and qualified I/DD job seekers?
In response to tough economic times with high unemployment, Jobs75 has a sole focus on securing 75 full or part-time jobs for Illinois citizens with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD) within the next year. Funded through a grant from the Coleman Foundation, Jobs75 combines the expertise and resources of seven outstanding nonprofits, including Seguin Services, Inc., Misericordia, Easter Seals, PACTT, Clearbrook, Park Lawn and Countryside Association, covering all of Chicagoland and Northern Illinois.
