Kreider Alliance

Mission: Kreider Alliance provides advocacy, education and support to individuals with disabilities in northern Illinois and is one of Kreider Service’s partner organizations.

In 1952, the organization that would become Kreider Alliance was started by a group of parents that did not want to place their children in an institution.  It was a simple classroom of 4 students and one teacher.  Today, Kreider Alliance supports programs of Kreider Services, who serves over 600 people with developmental and intellectual disabilities in northern Illinois.  Kreider Alliance is a 501-C not-for-profit organization. Kreider Alliance is located in Dixon, IL. and a past member of the ARC of Illinois and ARC of the United States.
