Located in Fairview Heights, Community Link's Metro location has served individuals with developmental disabilities for ten years.
Originally constructed as a church, the building on Bunkum Road operated as a Church of God until July 14, 2008 when Community Link purchased the building. The organization shared space with the church for a few years until enrollment dictated a need to expand.
Currently, developmental training services and production work are provided to more than 70 participants from the Metro East area. "Albert Einstein once said, 'Only a life lived in the service to others is worth living.' That's exactly how we feel at Community Link," stated John Huelskamp, executive director for Community Link.
Community Link is hosting a 10-year anniversary celebration on Friday, July 13th from 1:00 to 2:30 pm at its Fairview Heights facility. Participants, family and friends are invited to come and observe this milestone with us.
