Eden II’s Genesis Programs urgently needs your support. We are embarking on a capital campaign to renovate and outfit a new building. We’ve recently expanded into the Commack neighborhood of Suffolk County to focus on the growing need for support for adults with autism.
The goal is to provide a new site within the former school building at Christ the King, allowing Eden II to support more adults with autism, integrate into the Commack community, and create additional vocational opportunities. The site will have themed rooms to create a work site atmosphere for vocational training.
Eden II’s Adult Program supports over 40 participants over the age of 21. It offers a comprehensive Day Habilitation Without Walls program that allows participants to engage in volunteer and recreational opportunities in their community. Day habilitation services help participants achieve satisfying and rewarding connections and relationships within their communities. The program targets communication skills, activities of daily living, social skills, vocational skills, and community integration.
Our commitment to evidence-based practices and science offers each participant the best opportunity to achieve their highest quality of life. We recognize the needs of the autism community at large and strive to make an impact on as many people with autism and their families as possible. Understanding and responding to the family’s needs is essential to achieving a high quality of life.
Autism, for most, is a lifelong disability, and we believe that programs and services must reflect the needs of participants across their lifespans. Programming reflects the participant’s personal interests and builds skills using the surrounding community as a lifelong classroom.
Today, we ask for your support as we continue serving adults with autism.
