OnPointe provides training and consultation services on evidence-based programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) and mental illness. Many of these evidenced-based programs have been developed in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Chicago through our Community Academic Partnership (CAP). One of these programs, HealthMatters™, is nationally recognized.
Recently, NorthPointe Resources discussed the possibility of a furniture donation program with the Penny Mustard Furnishings store in Lincolnshire.

Penny Mustard believes in community involvement and social responsibility and a partnership was formed. Now Penny Mustard customers purchasing new furnishings are referred to NorthPointe to donate their used furniture.
