Pennies Possibilities.....


DayOneNetwork finds solutions and connections to needed services and supports for children and adults with developmental delays and/or disabilities in Kane and Kendall Counties and Hanover Township in Cook County. As the “system point of entry” for special needs’ services, DayOneNetwork serves over 3100 children and adults of which 2451 reside in Kane County this past year. DayOne’s mission is achieved through: early intervention, clinical evaluation and assessment, development and monitoring of individual service plans, access to information and referral to appropriate community services, 24 hour crisis intervention, determining eligibility, and advocacy for all service needs.

With the help of DayOneNetwork, 21% of the infants in our programs did not need further special education after age 3. Furthermore, DayOne has a 90% success rate of all service requests submitted to the State for funding. In addition, 95% of those we service gave us a ‘very pleased’ rating in our satisfaction survey. Finally, even with limited State funding increases, DayOne has risen to the challenge of providing services to 70% more clients from 2004 to the present.

To continue providing services to the community’s most vulnerable, DayOne depends upon fundraising events. On March 20, 2010, DayOne is holding its largest event of the year with its ‘Look Into Your Heart’ 2010 Auction and Gala held at the Q Center in St. Charles. DayOne is still looking for donations, sponsors, and attendees. Please go to, click on events to reserve your tickets! For more information about DayOneNetwork, please call Adrienne at 630-879-2277 x114. We are excited at the opportunity to partner with Colour Line Hair Studio and their penny drive. Their support for our community is truly exciting.

Colour Line is pleased to introduce you to the goodness that DayOneNetwork provides to so many within our local community. DayOneNetwork is our first non-profit organization who would enjoy the opportunity to WIN your vote for the pennies collected at Colour Line Hair Studio as well as other local supporters within our community.
THANK YOU for your support!
