Brighton Center and their major supporters break ground on Phase 1 of the Leveling the Playing Field Program & Facility Expansion project on November 1.
To date the organization has raised $5M of the $7M campaign costs, allowing them to proceed with Phase 1. Brighton hopes to finish fundraising by July 2019 and complete the entire expansion project by 2020.
The right help at the right time can truly change the trajectory of a child's life. That is why Brighton Center is expanding services and providing more holistic therapies, early childhood education, specialized camps and advocacy services for children with disabilities and delays ages 0-12.
Through a $7M Capital Campaign, Brighton Center will be able to provide onsite therapy services for children 3-5, including speech, occupational, physical and behavioral therapies. In addition the renovated campus will host a new activity center that will allow for after-school programs and specialized skills camps during the summer as well as an enhanced learning environment for children that attend the inclusive early childhood education program. The expansion is planned to be completed by 2021 and will serve a total of 4,420 children annually.
"Everything we do here at Brighton is to help level the playing field for children with disabilities and delays. We know that 90% of brain development happens before the age of 5 so if we can get in there and provide the right help at the right time we can help children get on track to be successful in life. We have been blown away by the support our community has extended to us for our expansion and are confident that with this continued support we will bring this expansion fully to life by 2021."
- Kim Jefferies, Brighton Center CEO
