Mission:

Brighton provides family & community education and developmen services to children (birth to age 22) with disabilities or delays empowering them to achieve their individual potential, making them successful in every community.

Programs:

The early childhood intervention (eci) program provides children with disabilities and delays from birth to age 3 with therapies and support services to assist them in achieving their full potential. Through this program, early intervention specialists and licensed therapists go into the child's natural environment to provide direct therapy and to teach the child's parents or caretakers methods in which to continue those therapies throughout the day within their regular routines.

bright beginnings is our inclusive early childhood education center. Bright beginnings offers children with and without disabilities from 6 weeks to 5 years old the opportunity to learn no matter what their differences may be-every person has something to offer. Children with disabilities are able to learn from their typically developing peers, and children without disabilities are able to gain a sense of respect for children with disabilities and their unique contributions.

the parent alliance for learning and support (pals) program provides classroom and hands on training to parents of children with disabilities, young adults with disabilities and community members in the areas of self, idea and general advocacy. All training for parents of children with disabilities and young adults (ages 15-22) with disabilities are provided through curricula which allow a hands on learning environment. The training provided through pals program works to improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities by providing them a voice until their own voice can be heard.

My first experience with Brighton was about 7 years ago working on the Taste of the Northside. At that time the event was very small and not well known, but through the years it has expanded to one of the largest Fiesta events. I am now involved in the Fundraising Committee and have enjoyed the team there tremendously. You can feel the compassion from the team members each time you walk through the doors of the Brighton Center.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The Taste of the Northside and the Duck race.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing at all.

When I became a Brighton family back in 2004 I was given something: hope. Hope, support, and commitment define Brighton. There is no place like this. Because of the staff, and how I have been supported, I am able to in turn support my children-specifically two who have disabilities. For this reason, Brighton is a place I always want to find some way of giving back to.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My family and I have been supported by PALS, ECI, and Bright Beginnings Child Development Center.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

none!

I have known about the Brighton Center for over 10 years now and am in awe of their growth and success over these years. They use to be housed in a neighborhood, in an old home that was turned into an office and a daycare center. They then moved to a building, which use to be a church and have recently bought this building! They have helped so many, countless children over the years through their diligent service and overall love for ALL children. I have volunteered at their Taste of Northside event since the first year it began. It is a wonderful event that has grown over the years into a huge official Fiesta event. Everyone that attends the event has a wonderful time and has only great things to say about Brighton and their staff! I am proud to be a supporter of this wonderful organization!

I have not personally been helped by the Brighton Center, but have seen many children first hand who have been. These kids are full of life and a love of learning! Many of these children have come so far, in their short little lives, due to the early interventions that Brighton provides.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I love it, just the way it is!

I am in awe of everyone at the Brighton School and how they understand the challenges of serving children with developmental delays. Brighton provides a refreshing and innovative environment for the parents of and children with special needs. Everyday Brighton inspires children and parents through their many community and developmental programs & they are empowered by Brighton's many resources and inclusive community culture.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

helping with a children's Holiday Party and talking with the parents.
