Discover the impact of the Miriam Foundation during the Gold Centre’s  first open house event 

As part of Autism Awareness Month and the Miriam Foundation's 50th  anniversary celebrations, the management of the organization invites the public to an Open House event at the  Gold Centre, on April 17th. Participants will get the chance to immerse themselves in the facility, which was  inaugurated in 2021, and discover the services and programs available. This activity is a unique opportunity to  grasp the positive impact made on the lives of people with neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism  spectrum disorder (ASD) and intellectual disability (ID). 

Holding this open house is a unique opportunity to raise community awareness of our organization's mission  and the importance of offering support to people with ASD and ID. We hope that this day will help spread the  word about our expertise and make inclusion a priority”, announced Warren Greenstone, President and CEO of  the Foundation. 

Supported by the Foundation, the Gold Centre is a leader in providing comprehensive, personalized services to  people of all ages with ASD or ID, as well as to their families and loved ones.
