Doors Open Dishes

Doors Open Dishes is committed to keeping the doors open to the group homes and workshops of individuals with special needs. The budget crisis in Illinois has led to severe cuts in services for these individuals, thereby jeopardizing the residential and training programs throughout the state. We partner with chefs across the city to create dishes inspired by an individual at one of these programs.  Making a donation to our cause will help create another desperately needed revenue stream for residential programs that house and care for our special needs Americans.
