About the Event

We are excited to spotlight Trinity Services, which provides the highest quality person-directed services and supports to more than 5,800 children and adults who have intellectual and/or developmental disabilities or mental health needs in 32 communities in Illinois!  

Speaker: Ray Carmody, Director of Administrative Operations and Network VIII (Trinity Southwest)

Ray has had administrative oversight of Trinity's maintenance, employee services, and admissions departments since 2011. He also oversees residential and community day services provided in Grundy County and at Trinity Southwest, located in Mascoutah, Illinois, and supervises Trinity's Shared Living Program, recreation center and clothing store.

Ray's career began at Misericordia, where he served children and adults with disabilities. He went on to work for the State of Illinois for 30 years. He was the senior staff person in an office that operated nine developmental centers. During his six years with the Illinois Department of Public Aid, he led a program that assisted 3,200 people with developmental disabilities and 10,000 people with mental illness to move out of geriatric nursing homes. The move was a result of the historic Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1987.

The purpose of our community spotlight events is to share models of high quality I/DD communities across the country, so that those of you who are looking to create or expand an I/DD community can learn from various examples.  There are many different ways to serve individuals with I/DD.  No one size fits all.  What may work for your loved ones may not work for others and vice versa.  The key is to learn from those who have gone through this process.  Their successes and failures can teach us so much and we do not have to reinvent the wheels! 

Please note that the event will take place in Eastern Standard Time.
