Together, We Did it!

Brighton Center Big Give

With the help of 1137 donors and counting, we managed to raise over $105, 000 for the kids of Brighton Center.  Despite the pandemic, Brighton Center has continued to provide therapy services, early childhood education and special education advocacy services to children in Bexar County. This year Brighton has faced temporary program closures, special event cancellations and funding cuts, but the agency has modified how we work during this time so that no child goes left without services.

The support we received through the Big Give is one way in which you helped support children with disabilities and delays in our community, many of which have faced unimaginable circumstances since the start of the pandemic.

“Our 2 year old son has learned all of his colors and numbers up to 10 in one school year.  His teachers pay close attention to his learning and development and give us biannual conferences on his development, strengths, and struggles.  He is learning how to use his words and handle his big emotions which is a big goal for any 2 year old!   The change in his behavior and attitude toward school has been amazingly positive since beginning Brighton Lullwood last September.  The atmosphere is bright and happy.  His favorite center is magnetic blocks and he has mastered the tricycle.  He gets plenty of art, outside play, imaginative play, and story time.  At home I find him sitting with a pile of books quietly “reading” to himself.  We’ve dealt with “learning daycare centers” that sent home cute teacher “assisted” art.  At Brighton Lullwood the learning is deep and wide for even the two year olds.  The Director Alix and Site Manager Ashton have done an amazing job getting Lullwood NAEYC Certified.  As an elementary teacher I feel confident that my son will be kinder ready both academically and socially.”
