Hear Our Voices Event Recap

The Second Annual Embracing Autism, Hear our Voices evening event was an incredible success! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support Avondale House and kindly partnered with us to raise vital funds for our three adult programs. 

The evening chaired by Emily and Allen Capps and Ashley and Christian Nelly welcomed nearly 300 guests and broke Avondale House fundraising records raising a total of $245,000! Guests enjoyed an amazing performance by Nashville's #1 hit singer-songwriters Phillip White, Monty Holmes and Kent Blazy, a touching mission moment speech by Kaitlyn Merz, an awards ceremony honoring Houston Methodist and Capital One, a diamond raffle sponsored by IW Marks, an exciting live auction, and more. Thank you to our fabulous duo Katherine Whaley and Kaitlin Monte for emceeing the event!

We are extremely grateful for our generous supporters! Together, we are providing individuals with autism the resources, education and training to develop to their fullest potential.

It's not too late to donate to Hear our Voices and show your support for our adult programs! Every dollar raised will help us continue to grow and support more individuals with autism.

Employment Services Program Spotlight

Avondale House partners with Pampered Pet Recreation Center through our employment services program. Pampered Pet Resorts has been an active part of the Houston community for over 40 years, starting with Pampered Pet Inn on Bissonnet St., and continuing with Pampered Pet Recreation Center, right next door to Avondale House on O’Meara Dr.

Meet Eryn. Eryn is one of our employment services program participants and works at Pampered Pet Inn. Her supervisor says, "Eryn worked alongside our staff and directly with our dogs on various day camp tasks. First, she executed a one-on-one enrichment, where she led Winnie, an English Cream Retriever, in exercises involving the, “sit,” command, balance, and climbing. Eryn even took a few photos of her new friend to share! Then, she went out to our play yards to help with a doggie foam pawty! She was able to monitor her very own small group as they played in the foam and dutifully disposed of any poop so our dogs could continue to play in a clean environment. Lastly, she worked with our staff to clean and sanitize kennels and dishes, learning more about the importance of cleanliness in pet care facilities and the dangers of unhygienic conditions. Overall, it was a joy to watch Eryn grow her confidence, share her current knowledge of dogs, and continue learning more to bring into her future career.
