The Halle Foundation Awards a New Program Grant
AZA United is thrilled to announce that the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation has provided a very generous grant to help us develop and launch a new Occupational Therapy program! OT helps individuals of all ages accomplish their personal goals by helping them overcome or cope with sensory, motor and cognitive challenges associated with developmental disabilities. Parents have been requesting OT from AZA United for years, and we are very pleased to be able to create this new program and expand our interdisciplinary care model for families.
“We are so grateful for the Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation’s donation,” said Dr. Aaron Blocher-Rubin, President & CEO of AZA United. “This program will allow us to more thoroughly meet the needs of individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities, in collaboration with our existing teams of psychologists, speech language pathologists, counselors and behavior analysts. Our plan is to launch this service at our East Valley Center and then expand it to in-home care, our main office in Phoenix, and our new West Valley Center.”
“This grant will have a tremendous impact on the families AZA United serves,” said Tom Egan, Executive Director of The Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation. “The new Occupational Therapy program will complement the services they already offer children and families throughout the state. Their overall goal is to reduce wait times and improve outcomes, assuring children can receive the majority of their therapies as swiftly as possible from one provider.”
Thank you again to The Diane and Bruce Halle Foundation for your continued support of AZA United's mission to help as many families as possible with individualized supports.
