St. Gerard House is pleased to announce its tenth annual First Words of Hope Luncheon. Its title, First Words of Hope, represents many things. It refers to the organizations’ firm commitment to help individuals with autism reach their highest potential, and pays homage to one of the greatest blessings in their work, the opportunity to witness a child communicate successfully for the first time.
The live premier event will take place August 26th at 12 noon online at https://givebutter.com/sghluncheon. All are welcome. Caroline Long, Executive Director shares “First Words of Hope is our annual fundraising luncheon that serves as the largest source of unrestricted funds.” Proceeds from this fundraising event help meet the needs of many WNC families with children on the autism spectrum. Over 70% of programs offered at St Gerard House are subsidized to make services accessible to all who need them. Community financial support allows St. Gerard House to continue this practice.
The mission of St. Gerard House is to help individuals with autism and their families experience more joy and achieve meaningful life outcomes. St. Gerard House is a non-profit organization in Hendersonville, NC offering evidence-based treatment for individuals with autism as well as programs for family members, guardians, caregivers, teachers, and others involved with care of the individual.
