THE ELIZA HOPE FOUNDATION AND THERAPY CENTER IS A PLACE FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES AFFECTED BY AUTISM.
The vision for a Richmond-based Eliza Hope Therapy Center grew from there. Back in Richmond, I met two other moms in a gymnastics class. Ann Kathryn is mom to Caroline and Jill is mom to Mary–both of whom received an autism diagnosis near age 2 like Audrey. They shared my frustration in the lack of environments where our children could be themselves. They searched for “sensory-friendly” activities and continued to find themselves with no options in Richmond.
I shared my vision for the Eliza Hope Therapy Center and we decided we’d come together to make it a reality. When we open our Eliza Hope Therapy Center in Richmond, our children will all havea place where they can safely play, learn, and thrive. Parents like us will have a welcoming environment to find resources, events, and a sense of belonging. We are so excited to bring Eliza’s legacy to Richmond! We are committed to spreading kindness and hope during a time when families feel lost.
I hope you all will join us as we embark on this great journey!
