Remember the Past

Since 1976

In 1975 Norma Jean Vescovo, Darrell McDaniel, Lou Nau, and Bob Campbell,  worked together to plan, develop, and set up the operations of the ILCSC. As a team, we worked with the people in the community to seek out the needs of persons with disabilities.

The ILCSC was established in 1976 and we made one promise, that has been consistent for over 40 years, ‘If you need a service and are a person with a disability, come to us and you will receive that service.’
