Foundation
The West Suburban Special Recreation
Foundation (WSSRF) is an Illinois
not-for-profit corporation that exists
to raise funds for WSSRA. The funds
raised by the WSSRF help expand
programming and support additional
needs of WSSRA when necessary. To
learn more about WSSRF, call Marianne
Birko at the WSSRA office. The WSSRF
needs you!

New Members
The WSSRF welcomes new members.
Please consider joining! No one on
the Foundation is asked to do more
than they can handle, yet by working
together, WSSRF raises $40,000 each
year to support WSSRA programs.
At each meeting, Foundation members
have the opportunity to give input and
ideas about program offerings.
So come join the fun and help WSSRF
improve and expand programs for
persons of all ages with disabilities.

Join a club for some Saturday evening fun! We’ll visit some of your favorite attractions
with friends while focusing on enhancement of social skills. Activities planned are

intended for adults who want to venture out while having fun!
If you’re new to Saturday nights, call Nick at the office and he’ll help you find the right group!

When Social Clubs are scheduled to attend sporting events, plays, concerts, etc, our return to the meeting locations is
approximate. WSSRA will remain at these events until they end. If the group is going to be more than 15 minutes late,

staff will attempt to contact families with updated information. For all out trips, the vans will depart the meeting location
5 minutes after the scheduled start time.
