The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our Board of Directors is growing again. Alexander Leigh Center for Autism (ALCA) seeks individuals who are passionate about making a difference in their community and understand the need for special education/therapeutic day schools, young adult services, and housing options for individuals diagnosed with autism.
ALCA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, full day, year-round Therapeutic Day School approved by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE). The therapeutic day school is for children 3-21 years old with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), OHI, multiple disabilities, developmental delay and/or intellectual disability. Our student population primarily comes from local public school districts that require a more supported placement to meet students’ needs. ALCA is based in Crystal Lake, IL. Students currently reside in Cook, DuPage, Lake, Kane, McHenry, and Will counties.
The Board meets the last Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm.
