About Friends of Jessica Lily Wetchler

Did you know that Ray Graham Association must raise more than $1.8 million every year to keep their vital programs running?

By contributing at any level to The Monarch Walk , you will help us reach our goal and ensure that Ray Graham Assoc. is able to continue providing their compassionate and vital services for persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, like our daughter Jessica Lily WetchlerOn Sunday September 24th, we will be with Jessica Lily at her home and celebrate our fundraising success in support of the organization. Jessica Lily's medical fragility no longer allows for her to attend these walks.

Thank you for helping us  reach this goal so that the thousands of people served by Ray Graham Association can continue to receive these crucial services!  Our State has failed to fund services such as provided by Ray Graham Assoc. and other community based living arrangements and services at the necessary level, causing an even greater gap than usual! 

Founded in 1950, Ray Graham Association for People with Disabilities is a non-profit organization that provides a broad array services and supports for nearly 2,000 people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.  Services include Residential, Employment, Life Skills, Recreational, and Family Support at many locations in Chicago-land area. 

Ray Graham Association was named after the late Ray Graham, the first Director of Special Education in Illinois and an innovator and pioneer in the field of developmental disabilities services.
