Scholarship Breakfast

Wednesday, March 13th, 2019 · 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM

Join us for breakfast!

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.  To continue providing this direct support, we invite you to have breakfast with us.   Hear from those who have received the gift of financial support and the impact it made on the growth and development of their loved one.  Join us, as we invest in individuals with autism and their families.

Tickets available here!!
