Thank You, Aramco!

We sincerely thank Aramco for selecting Avondale House to be a recipient of a $10,000 grant through their Committed to the Community Program. The funds will make an incredible impact, enabling us to expand our programming and commit to serving more individuals with moderate to severe autism. We are so grateful for their support.

Thank You, H-E-B!

Thank you to Episcopal High School seniors for spending a week with us and our program participants!

Last week, we welcomed 10 seniors from Episcopal High School to volunteer with us each morning. Our program participants love seeing new faces, and had a blast completing art projects, playing Bingo, participating in music class and interacting with the volunteers. It was such a joy to have them here with us, and we're thankful they were able to give us their time and help out with various activities.
