Construction on our Life Skills Center, known as "Garrett's Place" was completed in May 2017! It is named after one of our teens, Garrett, whose family business, Rock Bottom Stone Supply, has been instrumental in raising funds for the development of this type of center. Since 2015, they have hosted the "Driving Fore Autism" golf outing which has generated over $400,000 of income. Visit their fundraising page for more information on this year's event.
