My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Achievement Centers for Children, Highland Hls, OH, USA
They say that you can tell a lot about a person by the company they keep. The same applies to The Achievement Centers for Children (ACC). As a Board member, I am humbled by the selfless generosity and support this organization receives from Northeast Ohio's business and philanthropic leaders. Likewise, I am humbled by the passion and commitment of the volunteers and staff of this indispensible community resource. I am, therefore, extremely proud to tell my friends and associates about my involvement with the ACC.
The ACC is not only a resource for children with disabilities; it is a resource for families. Parents of disabled children tell us story after story of the ACC’s ability to provide the tools to accurately respond to the needs of a child with autism, or other developmental disabilities. Addressing the needs of a disabled child requires guidance, patience and love. The ACC provides these things, but most of all, it provides hope and understanding.
In 30 years from now, we may find cures for many of the ailments that afflict children today. But it is a certainty that new challenges and new needs will present themselves in the future. The ACC has adapted its services to the changing needs of the community since 1940 and is fully focused on perpetuating this tradition.
