Bridgeway House serves the needs of children with autism and related disabilities while educating and supporting their families. We began by offering desperately needed hope to a small handful of families and have grown immensely in the years since to offer hope to hundreds of families each year. Our programs help this diverse group of children meet the challenges of living with autism, as well as helping their parents and caregivers cope with the stresses of raising a child with special needs.

We provide best-practice services including ABA therapies, social skills groups, academic support, education, parent education and support groups, summer camps, family social events, a private school for children with autism, and more. We offer scholarships for all our programs because we are committed to serving all children with autism and their families, regardless of income level.

Four fathers with one thing in common, they are all raising a child with Autism. In their owns words they share their struggles and successes, fears and hopes, while projecting a quiet strength.

Please help Bridgeway House!
The difference that Bridgeway House makes for families and children living with autism comes with a price. Sadly, most families cannot afford the full cost of our services which are vital to our clients living with autism. Without grants, donations, and other fundraising, the families who rely on Bridgeway House would be without this crucial support. As a nonprofit organization, all donations to Bridgeway House are tax-deductible. Use the Paypal or Network for Good links on the sidebar to donate and help us continue to provide these critical services.
