SYCAMORE RESIDENTS BLAZE A TRAIL FOR COMMUNITY INTEGRATED LIVING
As childhood friends growing up in Sycamore, Allison Stahl and Earl Hollister
formed a special, meaningful friendship at a young age, even as life took them
on separate paths through the years. That lifelong friendship is what eventually
led them and their families to reconnect years later, marking a history-making event for
DeKalb County: Allison and Earl became the area’s first developmentally disabled adults to
achieve their own home in a two-person community integrated living arrangement.
