As you know, I started the Alexander Leigh Center for Autism with my friend Dorie to insure that Gillian would have access to a school that would best support her and give her all the opportunities to be as functionally independent as possible. Not only have we done that for her but many other kids and families. Along with an incredible staff we have become known as a premier school for children with autism. So much so, that we now have a waiting list. Our next step is to expand the school to accommodate 25 - 30 new students.
We just purchased a beautiful 40,000 square foot building in McHenry and we are knee deep in renovations. This expansion will create additional classrooms, sensory motor rooms, art and yoga rooms and expand our vocational training centers to better serve our students. This expansion project takes a large chunk of money and it is my personal goal to raise $10k this month. The first target is $2500. Your support of me and this project would mean so much. Whether you can donate $20 or $20,000 it all would help the me help more kids with autism. If you can't help financially, please spread this out to your networks far and wide!!
Thank you for your continued support of Gillian. Every donation brings us closer to completion of this project. ALCA continues to change the lives of our students, their families and me.
ALCA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, full day, year-round therapeutic day school approved by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) for children 3-21 years old with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), OHI, multiple disabilities, developmental delay and/or intellectual disability.
