July Special Offerings

The special offerings for July have been designated by the Congregation Council to be donated to the Northwestern Illinois Center for Independent Living (NICIL). NICIL is a non-profit, non-residential center serving Carroll, Jo Daviess, Lee, Ogle, and Whiteside counties. In 1985, NICIL opened its doors with a mission of supporting people with disabilities to live in the community of their choice. Living independently means different things to people. For some, it is the freedom and ability to make choices on how to live their life. For others, it may mean living free from the restraints of institutional care. No matter the definition, the choice to live as one chooses is the basis of the independent living program. The NICIL Team works with consumers on the goals of their choosing. They do not tell consumers what to do. Instead, they talk about options and give support so the consumer can make an informed choice.
Please consider a generous donation to the Special Offerings during July. Many people in our community struggle with their ability to live independently. Your generosity will ensure that this agency will have the ability to continue to support those in need of this assistance.
