Abi’s Place is located in Coral Springs and dedicated to building the skills of children with autism and complex disabilities to create a foundation for life long success through the delivery of highly individualized education, outpatient services, community involvement and lending support to families.
The collection is underway and will end on Friday, April 29th.
