Thrive On the Move

Thrive On the Move (TOM), formerly the Client Advocacy Board (CAB), is a group of self-advocates whose mission is to educate and showcase abilities and skills we can bring to our community, while moving beyond past barriers that came with being labeled as having an intellectual or developmental disability.


TOM strives to create relationships with new people, seek opportunities for personal growth, educate their community about their abilities, and continue to build volunteer opportunities. If you have a volunteer opportunity, please e-mail TOM.

TOM is also proud to be a member of The Alliance, a statewide team of self-advocacy groups in Illinois.
