About the Fund
Autism Project of Palm Beach County, Inc. Endowment Fund (est. 2019)
The Autism Project of Palm Beach County was formed in 1996 by a small group of parents to help address the needs of local individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families. The APPBC has a strong history of addressing the needs of children and adults with autism in Palm Beach County. We founded The Learning Academy at The Els Center of Excellence (TLA) and raise funds for both TLA and The Learning Center at The Els Center of Excellence (TLC), two charter schools serving over 250 children and young adults with ASD.
In May 2022, the APPBC opened “Babe’s House “, a Community Residential Home (group home) that serves adult males with ASD. The home is located at 18420 Limestone Creek Road in Jupiter and provides purpose-built housing and 24 hour, 7 days a week support and services. “Babe’s House” serves as a model for best practices in providing housing for individuals with ASD. The APPBC has purchased property on Church Street in the Limestone Creek community, to build a second home for adults with autism.
