Our Donors

Our accomplishments would not be possible without the tremendous support of our corporate, community, and individual donors. In 2017, community support made up 32% of our annual revenue.  It is through the help and generosity of our donors that we are able to continue to serve the children and families who need us most.

Here is a message from some of our donors about why they give to Emerge…

“The Emerge Center is one of our community’s best resources. It continues to set a high standard as it identifies and addresses the needs of families facing communication, behavioral, and development issues. After a tour of the facility, I was able to see how their integrated model of care has attracted great talent who provide outstanding services using evidence-based practices and innovative technologies. The staff at the Emerge Center is very professional and consistently works to think outside of the box while serving hundreds of children every year. I was touched by the devotion to each individual child and family. I am proud to contribute to more than a mission, but to results that have exceeded so many expectations. Knowing the entire team at the Emerge Center is fully committed to taking the time to find the right solution for everyone, makes it easy to support their much-needed work.”

“Autism affects one in 59 children. In September 2012, our son Philip became a number in this statistic. After being turned away by his preschool, Emerge took us in and assured us they would be able to help us and Philip. Philip received countless hours of speech therapy, occupational therapy, and Applied Behavior Analysis over the course of four years at Emerge. He completed their Bloom preschool and Kindergarten program. Today, Philip has successfully finished first grade and will be entering second grade in the fall of 2018.  He has earned all A’s and B’s, has made numerous friends and was awarded the Christian Life award for his class! We support Emerge as donors because we have witnessed first hand the importance of early intervention services and the impact it has had on our family.
