FUN Club has a new home at Little Friends


Above / Little Friends has planned an Open House from 5-7PM Mon., Feb. 12, for folks to become acquainted with FUN Club.

When Pat Adamatis joined the Little Friends Board of Directors after her retirement from Naperville Central High School, we knew that she would bring a wealth of knowledge from her 37 years as a Physical Education teacher and advocate for students with special needs.

Starting in February 2024, the FUN Club (Friends Uniting at Naperville Central), which she ran, will have a new home, and will formally become a part of Little Friends!

We at Little Friends couldn’t be more thrilled to offer the FUN Club as a part of our services. This club is an important resource for local students and young adults who have completed high school or transition programs. The club will continue to provide social opportunities to help the students and young adolescents we will serve as they move forward into adulthood. Experience validates the time together fosters personal relationships between peer buddies and those with special needs while being engaged with special activities and outings.

While activities offsite will be a part of our regular agendas, our plan is to primarily utilize the new Adult Day Services facility located at 27545 Diehl Road in Warrenville.

We expect that the FUN Club will meet monthly for a few hours on the evening scheduled to sing, dance, play games, and provide a place to connect with others. We expect the activities will live up to the Club’s motto, which is “if it’s not fun, it’s not the FUN Club.”

As a kickoff and introduction for individuals and their families, Little Friends will be holding an Open House at 27545 Diehl Road in Warrenville from 5-7PM Feb. 12. We encourage families to stop by and learn more about how they can participate in this wonderful initiative! It should be FUN!
