Riverside Foundation

For over 30 years, Riverside Foundation has provided residential support and developmental training services to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our residential facility at our main campus, our community homes and our work and activity center, are devoted to making a difference in the lives of the individuals we serve – and to those who love them.

Riverside Foundation is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt, social service business and a 501(c)3 charitable organization.

Our Services

CAMPUS

Riverside Foundation’s campus and residential facility serves nearly 100 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Over half of our residents have been here at least 20 years!

COMMUNITY HOME

Group homes let residents live independently with assistance in a supportive, cooperative environment, while providing neighborhood living and a sense of community.

WORK AND ACTIVITY CENTER

Our Work & Activity Center provides our residents with the opportunity to develop skills and assume responsibilities for real-life work in an environment that emphasizes individual goals and choices.

A Riverside Story: Laura Murdock and Todd Levine

Laura Murdock and Todd Levine have known each other since they were 5 years old. They went to Stratford School in Highland Park for 16 years until they both graduated at age 21. These two lifelong friends came to live at Riverside Foundation in 1985. Along with liking many of the same things, they also accompany each other on many community outings.

Testimonial

"Riverside has been a Godsend for Paul, my parents and the entire family. At Riverside, he has learned to take better care of himself, to productively live everyday life in a larger community of peers and staff and to work through everyday challenges. Paul still likes to spend a lot of time with his family, but it never ceases to amaze me how his face lights up when I drop him off at Riverside. There is no way that our family could have cared for or developed Paul as he is today."
