Walker and Giving Tuesday

It’s Giving Tuesday, and once again, we’re asking you to help Walker.
Please donate to Clearbrook, the amazing nonprofit which makes his life possible – and this year, put the smile back on his face.

And please make your gift ‘in honor of’ Walker Hughes

2019 started off a living nightmare for Walker. Swamped by a second auto-immune issue, coupled with paradoxical reactions to medications, our sweet guy was confused and terrified. He spent months in and out of psych wards, as one diagnosis and treatment after another failed to help. He was depressed and frightened, flailing about, desperate for help.

Through it all, Clearbrook stood by his side, and by ours. They insisted that Walker was their guy, too. During the roughest times, he could count on a very loving group home staff, plus a terrific, resourceful professional team to see him through.

Finally, the medical issues have been resolved. The best smile in the world is back!

You won’t be helping Walker alone. Clearbrook serves over 8,000 individuals and their families, providing residential and vocational services at over 50 locations, and is the largest provider of home-based services in Illinois. Clearbrook employs over 900 full- and part-time staff. Administrative overhead is 8%, well below the industry standard of 15-25%.

Thanks from Walker – and from Ellen and Robert
