The Riley Center was awarded $4,000 from the Vector Wealth Strategies Community Impact Fund in October 2017. Recently, we followed up with Kelly Mason, director of adult services and community relations, to learn how they plan to use the grant.
"This grant will allow The Riley Center to offset the financial strain of therapeutic services for families in our community," Mason said. "No child should be denied life-changing services due to economic constraints, and this funding will help ensure those in our community affected by autism continue to be provided with hope."
The Riley Center is a comprehensive services center, specialized in Applied Behavior Analysis that serves individuals and families affected by autism. The center offers outpatient, educational, adaptive living, social skills and inclusion programs for ages 2-22. Each year, the organization fundraises half the cost of their programs in order to offer families a more affordable means to provide treatment and hope for their children's futures.
