Annual Reports

Our ability to help people with developmental disabilities is supported by our generous donors and through careful stewardship of the resources entrusted to our mission

2023 • Change & Inspire

True to our roots, Lambs Farm is a place that continues to inspire change and growth, not only for adults with developmental disabilities but also for our staff and visitors. Our residential, employment and life programs and home-based services offer a foundation on which participants can build a life full of opportunities to be productive, make friends, and contribute to their community. 

Here is how that happened in 2023.

2022 • Learning Together

In 1961, our Co-Founders created a model program when they opened a Pet Shop on State Street in Chicago. They knew that when given the education and opportunities they deserved, people with disabilities could learn how to be independent, lead productive lives and become an integral part of the community. After more than 60 years, the men and women of Lambs Farm continue to learn in all aspects of their lives while teaching us important lessons along the way.

Our 2022 Annual Report shows how much we can accomplish when we learn together.

2021 • Perspectives

There is no question that the pandemic turned our world upside down, just like everyone else. Everything we came to know about Lambs Farm quickly changed, and we had to be ready to tackle anything that came our way. It has not been an easy road, but our residents and staff worked hard to think outside the box and see opportunity in every challenge.

Our 2021 Annual Report shows that we can find hope during turbulent times when we take a step back and look at things from a different perspective.

2020 • Heroes Among Us

It has been a difficult time for all, but Lambs Farm has found the strength to persevere and endure in spite of this year’s overwhelming obstacles. Our amazing staff have come together to do whatever it takes to keep our residents safe and healthy, while the men and women of Lambs Farm continue to teach us to enjoy the simple things in life and see the light in times of darkness.

Our 2020 Annual Report shows that we can get through anything when we work together.

2019 • Growing Together

At Lambs Farm, we continue to plant new seeds to help the men and women of Lambs Farm lead fulfilling lives. Through the many opportunities available, they create friendships that last a lifetime, celebrate achievements with their family, thank volunteers for their support and build strong bonds with staff.

The relationships shared in our 2019 Annual Report show that as the men and women of Lambs Farm continue to grow, we all grow together.

2018 • Choices

At Lambs Farm, we offer people with developmental disabilities what they deserve – a life full of independence, meaning and productivity through choices. Choices allow individuals to meet new people, enjoy new adventures and be who they truly are. The way the men and women of Lambs Farm express their passions, achieve goals and celebrate their abilities is truly inspiring. O
