Superheroes for Autism Campaign

The need for services for children and youth impacted by Autism Spectrum Disorder continues to grow and many families live in a state of crisis waiting for access to high quality care. We are expanding our continuum of autism care services to meet urgent community need through the construction of a new 12-bed inpatient unit and a first-of-its kind partial hospital program. You can be a Superhero for Autism and help us meet the critical need by making a meaningful gift towards this $13 million dollar capital project.

Our newest signature event coming soon…
