Birch is there to support people with autism and developmental disabilities reach their fullest potential in our education and community programs so they may live more independently, obtain competitive employment, and become integral members of their communities. Today, we touch the lives of more than 2,000 people and their families in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx. However, that number continues to grow and the need for our services is greater than ever. As a supporter of Birch, you will make a difference by helping us raise critical resources to empower people to lead fulfilling lives.
