Disabilities group to honor head of Evanston service

Jane Doyle, the executive director and co-founder of Center for Independent Futures in Evanston, will be honored at a fundraiser for a non-profit consumer review website that serves the disabled.

Doyle created Center for Independent Futures in 2002 to help address the severe lack of community-based support services for individuals with disabilities. The Center focuses on transitioning young adults with disabilities into community life and serves over 200 individuals with disabilities and their families.

The cocktail reception to benefit JJ’s List will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 1 at Pinstripes in Northbrook.

“Jane gives untold hours, energy, and professional expertise to support individuals with disabilities to be an active part of their communities,” said JJ Hanley, executive director and founder of JJ’s List. “JJ’s List works toward full integration of people with disabilities into the community and Jane’s leadership and generosity has helped pave the way for our successes.”
