Autism Center and Kellogg Family Foundation Independent Living Center
We are proud to announce that on February 9th we celebrated the official grand opening of our Autism Center in Howell, Michigan with an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony. We are pleased that our partners from the Howell Area Chamber of Commerce and Kellogg Family Foundation could join us for this event. The event was open to the public and provided offered tours of the center and all of the great features and services it offers.
Many of those who came to the open house were particularly impressed with the Kellogg Family Foundation Independent Living Center. In this section of the Center we have constructed a mock apartment for teaching individuals basic living skills to help them reach their maximum level of independence.
With our new Autism Center, families in Howell as well as the rest of Livingston county, now have local access to cutting edge autism specialists and therapy services that never existed before in Livingston county. We look forward to brightening the future and lives of individuals in Livingston county's autistic community.
Tours of the Autism Center are always available by Appointment: 517-518-8637
The Autism Center is located at: 3399 E. Grand River Avenue Suite 102, Howell, MI 48843
