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…

Change is hard, but with change comes a chance to spread your wings and fly!
At both our Elgin and Geneva Campuses, we have extraordinary moments of change happening. The lifecycles of ducks and butterflies are being taught and shown to our residents to show the beauty in change


It was a bittersweet day as we celebrated our dear friend and HR Manager Joan Rubino’s last shift with Marklund. A small group of staff was able to recognize the fun and devotion she brought to Marklund for so many years. Best wishes on your retirement, you will be missed!
