About Friedman Place
Located on the northwest side of Chicago, Friedman Place is a nonprofit residential community that serves adults aged 22 and up who are blind or visually impaired. The agency’s beginnings go back to 1935; we recently celebrated our eightieth year of serving low income adults who are blind. The agency’s services are provided in a building that we purchased and renovated in 2004. Each resident lives in his or her own apartment - there are 81 in the building – with a full bathroom and kitchenette. The building is specially designed for people with visual impairments such as special lighting; changes in floor textures; high-contrast paint colors; handrails; and "talking" elevators so residents may move about safely and freely while at home
Staff, specially trained to work with adults with visual impairments, provides social work and nursing services; housekeeping; meals; and a variety of programs and activities fitting resident needs and interests. Last year, the agency provided over 30,000 days and nights of affordable supportive housing; 24/7 assistance and services from nurses, Certified Nursing Assistants, activity staff, social workers, and others; 8,500 balanced, nutritious me...als in the last year, prepared in our own kitchen; and 2,000 hours of activities as diverse as meditation, writing group, bowling, tutoring, sing-a-long, exercise, crossword puzzles, and more. All services promote integrated physical, mental and social health so residents lead as full and as independent lives as possible. The agency has 65 employees and 100 volunteers and is led by a volunteer board of directors.
