Join Our Donor Wall!
Posted on: Wednesday, 7.20.2016
The Center for Autism is proud to share its latest milestone accomplishment with you! In the spring of 2016, we completed renovations on 15,000 square feet of additional space at our Northeast Philadelphia facility at 2801 Grant Avenue. This addition allows us to replicate all of our services at both locations— serving an additional 130 individuals and families in treatment programs and 240 annually through evaluation services. This growth also created more than 60 full and part time jobs. We are extremely proud to continue to meet the needs of the community by expanding our services to help more people affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Over two years ago, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania under Governor Corbett, endorsed a $1 million grant, which jump-started the $3.2 million construction project. Since then, many generous donors including the Connelly Foundation, First Hospital Foundation, Wawa and others have given significant contributions to fund the renovations.
Now we are inviting you, our loyal supporter, to publicly sponsor this project & help fund our services for individuals and families in Philadelphia. By purchasing a personalized puzzle piece, you can help honor a loved one affected by autism. Puzzle pieces are available at a variety of sizes and prices and will be displayed in the main lobby of the Northeast Philadelphia location. Please see the enclosed brochure for details on how to support this campaign.
This September, we will host a formal grand opening ceremony to commemorate this expansion project. We hope that your puzzle piece will be on the donor wall for this event and for many years to come. Thank you for being a part of our continuing success story of providing better outcomes for the lives of so many children and families!
