P.A.T.H building on its success

You can thank P.A.T.H of Door County for making sure families dealing with autism do not feel alone.  Approximately one in 59 children is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, a developmental disease that affects the brain. P.A.T.H recently purchased the former Jaycee Clubhouse to provide a safe space for families to bring their autistic children and interact with parents dealing with the same day-to-day struggles. Co-Executive Director Chas Hartl says they have seen an increase in people coming to them since they opened their doors.

P.A.T.H, which stands for Providing Access to Help, also supports families with children with down syndrome, epilepsy, and cerebral palsy. Hartl says the one disadvantage of opening up their building is not having enough toys for all the kids to play with during their visits.  We have information on how you donate your time and gently used toys online with this story.
