Thank you to everyone who supported the 2012 Holiday Gift Drive!
January 2013 - A big thank you to our generous donors and volunteers who made the 2012 Holiday Gift Drive possible! Thanks to you we were able to provide each and every individual living in our residential homes with a special holiday present. This year we had over 100 people generously donate clothing, gift cards, and presents. In addition 30 volunteers wrapped presents at Neumann on Saturday, December 15th.
For anyone unfamiliar with our gift drive, each year Neumann organizes donations of almost 200 presents for the individuals who live in our community homes. Many of these individuals have no family outside Neumann and would not otherwise receive a gift. 2012 was the seventh annual gift drive and a great success!
October 2012 - Neumann Family Services was represented by Ira Stevanovic, Residential Admissions Specialist, at the Special Olympics of Illinois Families Conference on October 13, 2012! For more details on the conference see the attached flyer or visit the Special Olympics Illinois website here!
September 2012 - Thank you to everyone who attended Board of Directors member Garrett FitzGerald's birthday party on September 27, 2012! As a guest bartender, Garrett donated all his tips back to Neumann Family Services' Developmental Training (DT) program. The evening raised over $400 for the DT program!

Exquisite Art Show
Thank you to everyone who joined Neumann Family Services for our Exquisite Art show, generously hosted by Corepower Yoga Bucktown, on April 5, 2012. The show was a tremendous success and featured Neumann's artists creating live sketches, including drawings of a yoga student who modeled yoga poses. The interactive experience was wonderful and a great conversation starter. The themes of the show were peace, balance, harmony and understanding and materials included graphite, charcoal, oil pastel and paint on paper and cloth.
Neumann Family Services is a proud supporter of creative expression. Individuals engaged in programming at Neumann Family Services are provided with a wide range of opportunities for therapeutic art making including open studio, jewelry making, mural painting, and performance and play-writing.For more information about the art program call Sara Miller at 773-907-5506 or email at email@example.com.
