BARBARA OLSON CENTER OF HOPE RECEIVES ALPINE KIWANIS CHARITIES GRANT
Barbara Olson Center of Hope is proud to announce it has received a $2,100 grant from Alpine Kiwanis Charities to expand its robotic animal program. The robotic animals provide a rich interactive experience designed to bring comfort, companionship, and fun to individuals with sensory needs.
Individuals with autism experience varying levels of stress and anxiety as well as difficulty in focusing, responding to sensory stimuli, and communicating with others. We take an individualized approach to meet their sensory needs, reduce stress or to improve their social interaction and communication.
