We must say THANK YOU once again to all those that supported our "Down by the SEA" Gala. The gala is an evening of celebration with such a successful outcome each year because of the continued support of each of you and we are proud to say that the event netted over $84,000!! Supporting fundraising events at SEA is very important and greatly appreciated. We are working to pay down the $1.7 million capital expense for our Lombard renovation, which has been built into our rent on an annual basis over the extent of our 12-year lease - so your support is needed more than ever.  (For a list of Sponsors click here and Donors click here.)

We are thrilled to have begun our high school work program at We Grow Dreams. WGD is a non-profit greenhouse in West Chicago that employs people with disabilities. We have six students attending the work program and we cannot wait for spring and what all their hard work is going to produce. 

Our students are engaging in new experiences, whether it is sweeping, washing flower pots, planting, weeding or propagating - WGD is a great place to work!
What's going on.... in High School
Did you know that some of our students work at the Westin? Some volunteer at 4 Kids Sake, some are learning job skills at Walgreens and some shop and purchase items for our school store. We strive to provide vocational and life skill experiences based on individual student interest and ability, for our high schoolers, preparing them for life outside of SEA. Does your company offer a work program that our students would fit into? We provide our own transportation and each student has an aide/job coach that comes along to support the student within the work environment.


Our students love to volunteer at 4 Kids Sake. They learn that helping others does a person good.

Greetings Families and Friends of SEA:

During this season of gratitude and giving, I wanted to extend a huge thank you to each of you for your kindness and ongoing generosity. We are embarking on our one year anniversary of being in our Lombard location. The help from friends and families with packing, moving, and organizing was much needed and greatly appreciated!  We are so grateful for the opportunity to grow alongside our students and families! Enjoy the winter break (December 26-January 6) and we'll see you in 2017!
