Support our Butterfly Campaign

For a limited time, we’re offering a way to leave your mark on The Emerge Center. Instead of bricks, we have a unique opportunity to show your support of our services, memorialize our long history, or honor a client or patient by purchasing a butterfly for our center. Butterflies come in 3 different sizes and will be installed in the day-school entrance hall of The Emerge Center. For more information, download our Butterfly Order Form or email
