The Rich Center for Autism

Help us upgrade our facility and double our capacity.

 Help us meet our goal of $6 million.

With your help, we can renovate our current space, upgrade our facilities, and expand our footprint from one floor of Fedor Hall to three. Our objective is to double our capacity and enrollment by 2020.

“The Rich Center is physically here, but if people really pay attention outside of the physical building, it stretches to every aspect of our lives.”

 The Rich Center for Autism Capital Campaign Needs


Increasing our space to the basement and 2nd floor of Fedor Hall and installing an ADA-compliant elevator will help double our capacity.

Therapy Wing

More space and private rooms for behavior analysts, occupational therapists, and speech and language pathologists for better one-on-one sessions.

Primary Upgrades

Needed upgrades include new flooring, lighting, paint, roof fixes, new sprinklers, additional bathrooms, and expanded nurse’s office.

Sensory Room

A second sensory room designed for older students with more sturdy equipment and lighting that meets their unique needs and sensory profiles.


Additional classrooms for junior high and high school age students, as well as more storage and bathroom facilities in all classrooms.

Professional Development Center

Designed to raise autism awareness in the area, as well as provide workshops and seminars for local educators and parents.

“This staff just loves our child just as much as we do.”

Cash or Check Donation

Every dollar raised moves us closer to our $6 million goal, which helps us realize our vision for The Rich Center for Autism.

Increasing our capacity helps us pursue additional grant monies for new services and job skills training, ultimately helping us establish The Rich Center for Autism as a model facility for autism education, treatment, and research.
