Dane Street announces another year of continued support of the Massachusetts General Hospital’s MGH Aspire Program. The reach and meaningful impact of the Aspire Program expands each year thanks to committed supporters and an engaged community across New England.
Aspire offers year-round programming for individuals aged 5 years to adult, including social groups, summer camp, school vacation camp and special events. Aspire also offers work-related support for adults seeking to enter the work environment, build their on-the-job skills and pursue their professional goals.
As a Platinum sponsor for this year’s gala, Dane Street’s financial contribution will help ensure Aspire’s services are accessible for families and individuals in need and allow for the expansion of program offerings. During the program’s 20 years of support, over $22 million has been raised to assist participants achieve skills necessary to be successful in their communities and workplaces. These funds have enabled the development of more than 40 new programs, support for more than 19 area school districts, and training and workshops serving over 900 education and private sector professionals.
This commitment is part of Dane Street’s ongoing initiative to support local communities and care for one another. “We are honored to continue our support of MGH Aspire and their remarkable commitment to shaping lives by helping individuals on the autism spectrum achieve their full potential,” - Will Fulton, CEO, Dane Street.
This year’s gala will be held on Thursday, May 11, at the newly renovated Four Seasons Hotel Boston. The evening promises to be an impactful one - the focus is on the social isolation that often affects the neurodiverse community. Throughout the pandemic, each of us experienced what it was like to be cut off from the rest of the world. For those experiencing autism, that feeling never ends. During this inspiring event, they will showcase programs across the Aspire community and highlight the role that we can all play in bursting the bubble of social isolation.
