Former Skokie Police Station Being Sold To Non-Profit

The Skokie Village Board will vote Jan. 21 on whether to sell the building to an agency which serves the developmentally disabled.

While many residents remember the building at Main Street and Lincoln Avenue as the longtime home of the former police station, it could become a center of daytime activities for developmentally disabled adults.

The Skokie Village Board will vote Jan. 21 on whether to sell the building to Shore Community Services,  which provides services to adults and children with developmental disabilities, for $1,780,000.

Debora K. Braun, Shore's executive director, wrote on the agency's website that with only three years remaining on its lease at the Lois Lloyd Center, 2525 Church Street, Evanston, the agency undertook a $2.5 million capital campaign to find a new home for its adult services division. 

Adult Services "provides adaptive daily living skills and pre-vocational skills to nearly 80 adults with individuals with intellectual and other developmental disabilities," Shore's website says.

Shore, which began in 1949, also provides child services and residential facilities and services.
