Lighthouse Scholarship

Supporting Our Communities

With a mission of bringing quality, center-based ABA therapy to communities that need it, Lighthouse Autism Center seeks to not only assist children with autism, but all families in the communities where we operate. Lighthouse does this by providing resources to families, sponsoring community events and partnering with area advocates and providers. We seek to continue that work by offering the Lighthouse Autism Center Scholarship for Autism Awareness, a $1,000 scholarship to be used for textbooks and living expenses.
