Eden II Programs received a $30,000 grant from The Brooklyn Home for the Aged Men to help provide improved services to adults with autism. This award will allow a companion to stay with our participants during hospital-based care to ensure that they are well attended to, and serve as advocates when hospitalization is necessary. Also under this grant, Eden II will provide specialized instruction and fitness equipment for the adults they serve, enabling them to maintaining the best possible health.

“We at Eden II are extremely grateful for the support of, and partnership with, the Brooklyn Home For Aged Men in taking these important steps toward improving our capacity to support our adults with autism as they get older, and ensuring the highest possibly quality of life for the people we serve,” shares Erika Hellstrom, Director of Development and Public Relations.

Eden II Programs has provided services to children and adults with autism since 1976. Serving over 500 participants yearly in ages ranging from 3 to 60, Eden II offers a wide range of specialized, community-based programs and other opportunities, with the goal of enabling them to achieve the highest possible quality of living across their life spans. Eden II strives to provide the maximum help possible to the autism community through education, adult day programs, residential care, family support, respite and many other services.
