We are proud to announce that our
merger with Marklund is final!
After eight months of preparation, Marklund and The Little Angels Center for Exceptional Care announced that the merging of both not-for-profit organizations has been approved. Serving children and adults with profound developmental disabilities, Marklund is based in Geneva and Bloomingdale, and Little Angels in Elgin.
The Marklund Board of Directors approved the merger at a board meeting Thursday, Oct. 27. Little Angels’ board made its approval Sept. 24. Two board members and a parent from Little Angels will be joining the Marklund Board of Directors.
Upon the official sealing of the deal and signing of all legal papers, Little Angels will be renamed the Marklund Wasmond Center at Little Angels, to acknowledge its rich history and founding family, as well as to conform with the naming of Marklund’s other facilities. The new organization will have more than 450 staff.
As our services merge and blend, so will our websites. Stay tuned for the new website and address!
