NSSRA’s new facility in Highland Park will finally give participants their own space to play and grow.  Waitlists will be reduced and program opportunities increased with new multipurpose space for social, art, athletic and leisure programs. Program cancellations due to outside facility challenges will also significantly decrease.

The expansion and variety of dedicated space in NSSRA’s new building will also transform program offerings for years to come. The new facility will include a front courtyard, participant lounge, five multipurpose rooms, fully accessible washrooms and a teaching kitchen. New programs being considered are:

• Cooking
• Art
• Social
• Gardening
• Adult day program
• Wellness
• Independent living skills

NSSRA Highland Park is a 30,000 square foot facility on a 5-6 acre campus just inside Highland Park. Set back on Lake Cook Road near Edens Expressway, it is a safe, recreation area in the heart of the northern suburbs of Chicago and central to NSSRA’s 13 partner agencies.


The building’s entrance is off of Marquette Road (just east of the facility). To get there, turn north off of Lake Cook Road onto Marquette Road. Once on Marquette, the first left is into the parking lot.
