The Key to Our Future
Individuals, families, foundations, and businesses – like you – are critically important to our annual campaign. Your gifts provide funding that makes it possible to help children succeed.
But that’s not all you do. Through regular giving, you allow us to plan for the future and develop even more ways to help children reach their absolute fullest potential.
For this reason, your continued support is the greatest gift you can give. Thank you for your support!
Just before turning two, Wesley came to The Childhood League Center with a diagnosed speech delay. He was non-verbal and his mom, Samantha, was worried if this would be the right place for him.
I remember his first days of school so clearly. I had never left him with anyone. For weeks, I’d watch him from the observation room until I finally felt comfortable enough to leave. You were the first ones I trusted. Now, I don’t know where we would be without The Center.
Not long after he started here, his team suspected he may have autism and talked with Samantha who agreed. Wes’ service coordinator accompanied Samantha to the evaluation appointment and was there with her when she received the diagnosis. We’ve been a part of the journey ever since!
And what a journey it has been! Wes is blossoming! When he first came, socializing and speech were some of his biggest challenges. Now, his mom says,
“He is communicating so much! His vocabulary has exploded! He runs up to strangers and says, ‘Hi!”
Samantha’s journey is marked with joy. From where Wesley was when he started to where he is today, Samantha does not worry about his future.

Take a look at how your gift can help Wes and so many others at The Center:
- $75 ($6/month) provides Wes with nutritious snacks and lunches for a year
- $500 ($42/month) pays for a piece of essential therapy equipment
- $2000 ($167/month) provides Wesley’s teachers with classroom supplies for the school year
- Roughly $10,000 ($835/month) covers the gap in funding for children, like Wes, with special needs!
None of this would be possible without the generous support of our community – from donors like YOU!
