Aurora Vistas Foundation works to raise awareness of the issues facing Aurora’s children and their families though community education. Funds raised will support programs for specials needs. These programs include:
Early Childhood and Family Center: offering a comprehensive range of services for young children with emotional or behavioral difficulties and their families.
Metro Children’s Center: a day treatment program for children in first through eighth grades. These children receive individual and group therapy, and attend school in a special-education setting.
The Intercept Center: a collaborative project of Aurora Mental Health Center and Aurora Public schools open to children with a developmental disability and mental illness.
Hampden Academy: Therapeutic school offering a structured educational and therapeutic program for teens, as well as an intensive outpatient program.
Many of these programs and services that help children and their families cope with a mental illness would not exist without community and business involvement. Join Aurora Vistas for Afternoon Tea “For Our Kids” and help our community to secure funding to support special projects for Aurora children.
