TRADE Industries provides a number of services for our consumers. We have our CILA Program (Community Integrated Living Arrangement) and CDS (Community Day Services).
TRADE has three CILA homes: all three are in McLeansboro. Our consumers in this program live in homes like ours! We have four consumers to each home and they do shopping, eat out just like we do!
TRADE's Community Day Services provides services to consumers from Hamilton, White and Saline counties. We have a Kindle program-we have educational games on our Kindles. Consumers are able to play these games and learn at the same time. Our consumers work on ADL's-learning how to provide or assist with basic care for themselves. They have outings to ballgames, the public pool, area stores, as well as functions out of the area like Bowl-n-Bop at SIU.
Our consumers from CDS also work in our Recycling Program: we take cardboard, paper and plastics (#2). These products can be dropped off at our south building anytime we have recycling bins marked outside the building.

TRADE Industries regretfully announces the retirement of Dick Deitz from our Board of Directors after 28 years of service. Mr. Deitz started on our Board in January, 1995. He served in various roles on committees, as well as holding different officer positions. Mr. Deitz was a strong political voice advocating on behalf of TRADE, its staff, and clientele. His knowledge, voice of experience, and jovial presence will be missed at board meetings. TRADE Industries' Board of Directors, staff, and clientele wish Dick a happy retirement.
