Permanent Supportive Housing for Individuals on the Autism Spectrum
Finding and maintaining appropriate housing can be one of the biggest challenges individuals on the autism spectrum face in our community. That's why we are thrilled to announce that we will be breaking ground this spring on an apartment building specifically designed for the unique sensory needs and executive functioning challenges that often accompany an autism diagnosis. 85 North will offer affordable one bedroom apartments, laundry facilities, onsite support from ScenicView Academy, a sensory room, and a convenient downtown location to provide easy access to public transportation and other services. The building is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2022. This innovative partnership with the Provo Housing Authority, the City of Provo, the Noorda Foundation, and donors like you is sure to set the standard for community autism accommodation.
The Noorda Scholarship fund
The Noordas' vision has always been to make ScenicView Academy's exceptional services accessible to all, regardless of a family's economic circumstances. With the founding of ScenicView, they established a scholarship fund to assist with costs such as tuition, room and board, clinical support, transportation, social activities and countless other services. Their generosity has allowed hundreds of individuals and families to benefit from the ScenicView experience. Our graduates upend both the alarming national statistics surrounding autism, as well as society's limited expectations of what is possible for those with disabilities. However, that was 20 years ago. With rising costs and limited funds, we need your help to continue to provide young adults access to our programming. Our goal for this year is to raise $80,000, the amount of one full-ride scholarship. Your one-time donation or a monthly commitment can be accepted by clicking the button below.
