OUR PROMISE  Making everyday life possible for individuals with profound disabilities

OUR VISION A happy, safe, purpose-filled life for every individual with intellectual and developmental disabilities
Marklund is a nonprofit organization that serves infants, children, teens and adults with serious and profound developmental disabilities and special healthcare needs.
At Marklund, everything we do begins with caring for each and every child or adult with the same care we would want for our own family members. Many of our residents and community clients are non-ambulatory and have severe cognitive deficits due to genetic disorders or complications during pregnancy and delivery. Others acquired disabilities during infancy or childhood through tragic accidents. Many have complex medical problems that require 24-hour skilled nursing care.

Being an advocate for Marklund just got easier…

Marklund Special Events & Appeals

from Marklund resident and spokeswoman,
Heather D!

Indoor and outdoor therapy sessions brought huge smiles to the residents and students of our Marklund locations. Perfect weather and even better therapist lead to a great week of movement and fun for our guys! #therapythursday #marklundstrong #smashinggoalslikepumpkins


#ripGaleSayers a man who was a longtime supporter of Marklund, and our residents. As he said, "It's for the kids!" We are proud to have one of our group homes named after you! #Number40 #ChicagoBears

The Geneva campus sunflowers are not only beautiful but also now a delicious treat. Staff and residents used their air fryer to make homemade edible sunflower seeds. YUM! #WhatsCookingWednesday #Sunflowers


2020 has us all feeling a little bit ”prickly,” but the students in Elgin really enjoyed planting some cacti and succulents to brighten up their classroom. #hybridlearning #marklundstrong #MondayMotivation


Head into this beautiful weekend feeling good by taking a little time for some self-care, just like our resident, Sheila! #happyfriday #FeelGoodFriday
