Lighthouse Autism Center Celebrates 5-Year Anniversary

In May of 2012, Lighthouse Autism Center opened its doors to its first family. With just one center, a handful of staff, and four kids, the center started with humble beginnings. “We knew what it was like to raise a child with autism and wanted to provide support and services to other families. We wanted them to know they weren’t alone in this,” said Gregg Maggioli, founder of Lighthouse.

It didn’t take long for momentum to pick up. In the first year, Lighthouse Autism Center in Mishawaka grew, accepting more children and hiring more therapists. Soon it was clear there needed to be more than one center to meet the incredible need for ABA services in Northern Indiana.

In three years, Lighthouse opened three more centers – a Warsaw location in August of 2013, a Mishawaka location in April of 2014, and a Plymouth location in August of 2015. Today, Lighthouse employs over 100 people and serves over 70 families in Northern Indiana.

As Lighthouse celebrates their 5-year anniversary, they continue their mission of bringing quality, center-based ABA services to communities that are in need. “We also look forward to seeking more ways to bring our  services to families in other communities,” said Gregg.
