Gold Centre Hosts Open House to Kick Off Autism Awareness Month and Celebrate Miriam Foundation's 50th Anniversary

Yesterday marked the beginning of Autism Awareness Month and the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Miriam Foundation, as the Gold Centre opened its doors to the public for an enlightening Open House event. Nestled in the heart of our community and inaugurated in 2021, the Gold Centre serves as a beacon of support for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Intellectual Disability (ID).

Visitors were warmly welcomed to explore the state-of-the-art facilities and learn about the diverse range of programs and services tailored to meet the unique needs of individuals with ASD and ID. From educational initiatives to therapeutic interventions, the Gold Centre offers a comprehensive array of supports designed to foster growth, independence, and inclusion.

Warren Greenstone, CEO of the Miriam Foundation, underscored the importance of raising community awareness about their mission and the profound impact their support has on the lives of clients and their families. "Events like these provide invaluable opportunities to showcase the dedication of our team and highlight the transformative power of our programs," remarked Greenstone.

The event was marked by enthusiastic participation from attendees, who engaged in insightful discussions, interactive activities, and heartfelt exchanges. Photos captured throughout the day reflect the spirit of unity and collaboration that permeated the event, showcasing the unwavering commitment of the Gold Centre team and the palpable sense of community among participants.

As Autism Awareness Month unfolds and the Miriam Foundation commemorates five decades of service, the Open House at the Gold Centre stands as a testament to the enduring impact of advocacy, support, and empowerment. Together, we reaffirm our commitment to championing inclusion, understanding, and acceptance for individuals of all abilities.
