Other Ways to Support Us
Decreasing Out of Pocket Costs for Families
Our clients currently pay 80% in tuition and 20% of our costs are covered by outside funding. We would like to seek additional support from individuals, foundations, and corporations, to subsidize these costs for our clients. By lowering the costs, we will be opening up our doors for more children to utilize our programs, for an extended period of time (ideally 3 years). By participating in our programs for a longer period of time, the children are able to receive consistent supported practice in developing meaningful relationships. The child will then generalize these new social skills to their family and peer interactions. Participate in our capital campaign totaling $150,000.00
Renovation of our Facility
We are renovating our new lease, which allows us to provide programming in our own space. Renovation costs $100,000.00 The starting price needed to fund this project is $150,000.00. We have currently raised $50,000.00 to go towards this goal and are seeking your help to reach it.
Developing Our Full-Time Staff
As our company continues to grow, we would like to continually develop our full-time staff and bring on new full time staff to enhance and expand our programs. In order to offer competitive salaries for valuable employees, whom we have groomed for the past 5 years, we will need to raise an additional $65,000.00
