Leading Construction Company Supports Fundraiser for Autism Awareness
STUART, Fla. — Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL) was a Prom Queen Sponsor at The Hope Center For Autism 2nd Annual Prom Night. The event took place at 2580 S.E. Willoughby Blvd. in Stuart on June 11. The prom night started at 6 p.m. and included food, drinks, music, dancing and more. The money raised provides support for local families affected by autism.
The Hope Center’s mission is to open the doors for those affected with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) on the Treasure Coast. The Hope Center is dedicated to preparing students to be college, career and community ready through programs designed to support the learning needs of students.
The nonprofit began in 2002 in a small room in the First Baptist Church in Jensen Beach when a small group of parents recognized that their children required more intensive instruction in the skills needed to be successful on a traditional school campus. In 2004, the Hope Center became a public charter school for students in Pre-K through 2nd grade. In 2018, the Hope Academy for Autism charter was accepted by the Martin County School District, adding grades 3-6. Hope has established additional support to assist all people of all ages and levels of need with ASD. Programs include Next Step, a social-vocational group for teens with autism facilitated by young adults with autism. The group began in 2018 with just four members and today has more than 80 young adults and teens with autism who meet weekly to socialize and learn tips for navigating issues.
“We’re honored to support this incredible event that raises awareness and impacts the lives of so many. We’re proud to support our local organizations,” said Stephen Shanton, CEO and president of Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL).
