Venture Bound

Autism is a lifelong diagnosis that may require different supports through each phase of a person’s life. We believe everyone deserves the opportunities to reach their own personal best. Your gift here will allow us to provide opportunities to our adolescents and young adults that will prepare them for each transition in life through our Venture Bound program.

Scholarship Funds

The mission of Great Lakes Collaborative for Autism (GLCA) is to grow the opportunities, future, and lives for all individuals affected by autism.  Bob and Suzy Tyner founded GLCA in 2004 to assist local individuals and families touched by autism, and to provide better access to programs and services.

In its first year, the Suzanne Tyner Autism Scholarship provided $17,068.95 toward therapy services, educational support, camps, and equipment, and to programs that support the development of a loved one on the autism spectrum.  Wanting the best opportunities for the growth and development of a loved one with an autism spectrum diagnosis, then looking at the cost of providing it, most families are overwhelmed.  The financial needs are so great, and we understand we cannot fully support most needs at 100%, but the scholarships awarded provide much needed financial relief.

Your Scholarship gift here will provide scholarship dollars to organizations that serve families with a demonstrated need.
