Can you imagine the delight in hearing your child say “mama” or “daddy” for the first time after waiting two or three years? Or painfully watching your child play alone while other children are nearby, and then one day, seeing your child laugh with a friend or get invited to a birthday party? With your support, Emerge makes this joy possible.
The Emerge Center offers hope to children facing a diagnosis of autism and individuals with communication challenges. Using evidence-based therapies in a nurturing environment, our team helps families imagine brighter futures. Our innovative approach integrates therapists, psychologists and social workers into a single team with the child and family at the center.
Our mission is to help every family who walks through our doors, especially those with limited resources and nowhere else to turn. With a rising demand for our services, we have deepened our commitment to meeting the evolving needs of families in our care.
In August, we opened The Emerge School for Autism as Louisiana’s first public charter school for children with autism. This is a transformational milestone in our decades-long history of service to this community. The School enables us to extend our continuum of care to serve elementary-aged children and allows them to prosper in an environment tailored to their needs.
This is a time of tremendous growth for Emerge – growth in our capacity, growth in our impact and growth in our ability to offer hope to more families. We are challenging ourselves to do more, and we invite you to grow with us.
Your donation to Emerge will have an immediate impact on the families who need us the most. Please consider giving the gift of hope this holiday season.
