The Autism Education Center has for three years provided support and services for both autistic childrren and adults but is now closed due to the lack of community support.
We have been a completely independent, privately run 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and depended upon the involvement of the families we served, as we participated actively in our community. Through private donations, the dedication of our volunteers, and our Angel Sponsorship programs, we were able to keep our services affordable for families, and took great pride in the successes of our clients as they journey to reach their fullest potential. Unfortunately, this support has waivered to the point that we are no longer able to continue operations. The staff at the A.E.C. have made the decision to close our doors for good. Our staff members and volunteers have done so much for so long, and for so little, and we have been burning the candle at both ends. So many of our staff and volunteers have made great personal sacrifices in order to keep the Center going. Four have given it their all. Unfortunately, there were not enough volunteers and staff to meet the requirments for the continuance of the A.E.C.
iThere have been two congregations that have provided us with the financial support that allowed us to help all the people that we have could for the years we have been in
operation. These congregations have stuck with us to the very end, and we thing that they deserve special mention. These congregations are the Springfield Community Church in Lynn Haven and the Congregation of Yahweh in Panama City. Your tremendous and continued financial support has allowed us to bless and help so many people. The financial support for the A.E.C. has come from the pockets of individual members in these congregations, and each member of these congregation have our deepest gratitude. May YHWH (God) bless and keep you and make His face shine upon you and give you peace.
We would also like to thank the other organizations and businesses who have provided donations that have helped so many people.
There was a poster showing what it was like in the Kingdom of Heaven. There were a large feast table set for people who had the best clothes and crowns upon their head. Those sitting at the table were those who have believed and given what they could to help serve and bless other people doing so withoput expectation of reward. There were also a great number of other people who were the ones cooking the food and serving those at this table. The people doing all the work and serving those at the table were those who did not contribute to others or help others without expectation of a reward.
