We Are Clearbrook

Clearbrook is committed to being a leader in creating innovative opportunities, services and supports for people with disabilities.  With a staff of 900+ and more than 60 locations across Chicagoland, Clearbrook is proud to report that 92 percent of every dollar raised goes directly into our programs and services.


As we continue to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, Clearbrook has taken extra precautionary measures to enhance our infection control efforts and minimize exposure. Additional cleaning and sanitation is being provided at all locations, visitors to Clearbrook locations are limited to essential visitors, outings involving large group activities have been canceled, and the use of volunteers has been temporarily suspended. At the end of the day Friday, March 13, all Clearbrook Community Day Services locations closed and will remain closed until at least May 30 as directed by the Illinois Department of Human Services, Division of Developmental Disabilities. We are closely following recommendations from the Department of Public Health and will adjust our operations accordingly. Clearbrook’s leadership staff will continue to monitor this situation and take measures to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.

Clearbrook Challenge @ Exmoor Country Club
Aug 10 @ 10:30 am – 7:30 pm

Join Clearbrook for a round of golf like no other at the prestigious Exmoor Country Club in Highland Park on Monday, August 10th.

Founded in 1896, Exmoor is one of the first three golf clubs in the Chicago area. It has a rich history of hosting golf tournaments including, the Western Amateur Tournament in 2012. Exmoor’s original course opened in 1897. Famed golf course architect Donald Ross redesigned the course in 1915, giving it the high-styled bunkers and imaginative green complexes for which he’s known. Course architect Ron Prichard restored the course in 2003. From the longest tees it offers 6,849 yards of golf for a par of 72.

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are monitoring the situation, but expect the outing will take place. We will keep registrants updated as we receive guidance from health officials.
