Thank you Halle Foundation
The Halle Foundation recently granted AZA United a very generous funding amount for the implementation of the Support from the Start program to provide support to families of children with special needs.
Support from the Start program will provide comprehensive, wraparound services delivered by several highly trained practitioners, including two Family Support Specialists, as well as a counselor and clinical psychologist. This program will not only provide timely and seamless access to diagnosis, treatment and even ongoing counseling services available at AZA United, but it will guide families through the complicated systems of care outside of AZA United to ensure families receive all the services they need as quickly as possible. This innovative, interdisciplinary program will use a family and patient-centered approach to care.
AZA United estimates that the
Support from the Start program will serve at least 250 people during the first year of program implementation, reaching families with children with autism and other developmental disabilities at difference stages, from early diagnosis and care to treatment and support at any age. We also plan to offer these services to teens and adults with special needs as this program grows. More information will be released at a later date regarding the
Support from the Start program.
Thank you to the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation for their generosity!
