SCOTT'S STORY OF JOY

Scott is a single father whose sons, Tommy (10) and Obleo (8), both have an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Thanks to your donations, Tommy had the opportunity to participate in the Autism Transitional Classroom (ATC), a program funded by United Way. The ATC aims to give students the intensive support required to function successfully in an educational setting, and eventually transition to their local schools.

Scott has shared that thanks to the Autism Transitional Classroom, Tommy’s ability to speak and socialize has improved dramatically; it brings Scott great Joy knowing he can better communicate with his child.

While the ATC may only have space for 6 children at a time, there is no doubt it is truly changing the lives of participating students and their families. To help United Way continue to bring Joy to families like Scott’s, please show your #LocalLove and donate today.
