Hello ACEing Community,
As our programs’ expands further across the US, we continue to reach more children and families affected by autism. Since September, we have started eighteen new programs, bringing our total number of programs to sixty-two. Over the same time period we have served 909 participants (5-18 yrs.) for a total of 706 hours of tennis instruction.
It has been a busy and exciting Spring for ACEing Autism. To support our rapid growth across the United States and build a foundation of support for future growth, we expanded our team this March by hiring Jessica Brooks as our first ever Director of Development! Jessica brings over 12 years of experience working in the non profit industry, most recently overseeing all fundraising and programmatic efforts for Best Buddies California, a volunteer driven non profit organization that provides opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities to find social opportunities and jobs.
In April, we moved our headquarters office to West Los Angeles, where we have more space to accommodate our growing team. As we kick off the summer months, we are busy planning a celebration of ACEing Autism’s 10thbirthday by hosting the ACEing Autism 10th Anniversary Gala on November 3rdat The Griffin Club in Los Angeles. We would love your support as we celebrate our growth over the last 10 years, and build a community of support for the next 10! We are actively seeking sponsors and in-kind donations for this event. If you are interested in learning more about how you or your company can be involved with this event, please contact Jessica@aceingautism.org
