Today’s Spotlight: Autism

Today’s spotlight is on a group of people very close to our hearts: people with Autism. We started the Rock On! Program in 2007, which is a mentor-based, indoor climbing program for kids with Autism and their siblings. We could not have predicted the positive response that came as a result of this program. Autism affects 1 in 88 children in America and we are blessed to get to serve so many youth and families who are affected by Autism in the greater Salt Lake area.
