Roads to Recovery continues to serve youth on the autism spectrum during COVID-19!
In Her Own Words—Administrative Director, Simone Edgell
Roads to Recovery (RtR) has been adapting to the ever changing guidelines set forth when the Covid-19 pandemic first started in March 2020. Our students are of the utmost importance to us, and we strive to keep their educational needs in the forefront. Because of the safety measures we have put in place, we are happy to report that our students did not fall far behind with their educational needs.
We are fortunate to have a staff that has worked endlessly creating online curriculum for our students who have chosen the homeschool option. For those students who have chosen to attend center-based services, we have applied additional health and safety measures to ensure that safety is our number one goal.
Despite the difficulties that came with COVID-19, RtR held a week-long summer camp filled with fun outdoor activities to highlight several different “theme” days. The students loved their time at camp which included special events such as a car wash, a visit with farm animals, a hayride and a jumpy castle. These camp activities really brought joy and a much needed lift to our students’ spirits!
Roads did face the hardship of having to cancel our annual Golf Outing fundraiser, Drive for Autism, which has a significant impact on our annual budget. Through the support of our community, we have been able to continue to progress and make differences in many lives! We are proud of our staff and our families as we move forward and are united in our mission to serve our students who are living with autism spectrum disorders.
Our fundraiser at the end of October, the Cheesecake Fundraiser, which runs through mid-November, is very popular. We hope to expand our partnerships with local businesses who might be interested in purchasing cheesecake gifts for their staff or customers. Our students, families, and staff sell a variety of cheesecakes to the community and RtR earns 50% of every sale.
