Illinois Association of Rehabilitative Facilities (IARF)
The Association promotes community services & supports to persons with intellectual/developmental disabilities, mental illness & substance abuse problems. IARF has been the voice of human services organizations since its incorporation. The stated purpose of IARF is:
The AbilityOne® Program is among the largest sources of employment, on Federal contracts, for individuals who are blind or have significant disabilities in the United States. Established in 1938, the program is administered by the U.S. AbilityOne Commission®, an independent Federal agency, with assistance from National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and SourceAmerica®
Established in 1974, SourceAmerica is one of two U.S. nonprofits designated in the Javits–Wagner–O’Day Act to support nonprofit agencies participating in the AbilityOne Program. That program provides employment opportunities for people who are blind or have other significant disabilities by providing them opportunities to produce goods and services under federal contracts.
Prior to July 1, 2013, SourceAmerica was known as NISH.

The mission of ACCSES is to promote and enhance community-based solutions that maximize employment and independent living opportunities for people with disabilities.
