Thornton Township continues to serve as a leader in offering programs and services for our residents with disabilities. The Special Services Department oversees that responsibility in addition to continuing to promote equal access to events and programs for all residents.

For further information or to register for Special Services classes, call 708-596-6040, Ext. 3163.

The Special Service Program was created several years ago to provide activities and outings for the Developmentally Disabled within the Township and surrounding areas. Over the years it has expanded to the building of wheelchair ramps, medical equipment and home modifications.

We are here to assist people with disabilities, their families and agencies  with the resources and information that are available to us.

Special Services also provides quality health and education programs for local residents of all ages. We network with, and provide programs for, local schools, community, and non-profit organizations.
