Summer of Sharing Donation Provides Skills to Teens with Special Needs
|Students and counselors at the Living & Learning Center in|
Northville are excited to put their donations to good use!
Running through August 31st, Community Financial will donate $60,000 to organizations that make your community better. Recipients are chosen based on nominations submitted at SummerofSharing.org, where we ask you to consider, “What GOOD could you do with $1,000?”
One of the 2018 recipients, the Living & Learning Enrichment Center in Northville, MI, is changing the lives of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other similar special needs. This 501(c)(3) non-profit organization has a mission to assist teens and adults in achieving their full potential, while overcoming the obstacles that come with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The Living & Learning Enrichment Center provides a safe space for developing new skills, whether social or career-based. The center pairs exciting social activities with job skills training, to create a well-rounded learning environment that gives teens new, game-changing capabilities.

“Programs that offer social skills are essential, yet they are not covered by health insurance. The generous donation that was made by Community Financial will be used to help more families access our programs. We want to be able to help families by offering scholarships to people who need financial assistance. The money Community Financial has donated to Living & Learning will allow us to provide this.”
To learn more about the Living & Learning Enrichment Center, the good that they are doing in the community, and the services they offer please visit livingandlearningcenter.org.
