What is VIA's Match to a Million?


VIA's new Center for Adolescent and Adult Autism Services (CAAAS) is slated to open this fall - and we need YOUR help! The Perry Foundation and The Rathburn Family Foundation have both provided matching funds for the needed building renovations. If we can raise $500,000, it will be matched by each foundation at $250,000 for a total of $1,000,000 dollars towards the project!

How does the Center for Adolescent and Adult Autism Services (CAAAS) support VIA's mission?

The CAAAS is creating something that has not existed before in our community - a place to establish lifelong learning, employment, social connection, and personal growth. VIA is building a bridge to adulthood for people with autism in our region. To learn more and view a virtual tour, visit VIA's Bridge to Adulthood Campaign Page.

Who has oversight of the Capital Campaign?

The VIA Board of Directors has ultimate oversight on any decisions made on behalf of the organization, but the Capital Campaign Steering Committee is tasked to oversee strategy and fundraising for this project.


When will the CAAAS renovations be completed?

Construction and renovations are scheduled to be completed this summer. We will be hosting a Grand Opening event this fall to welcome the public - stay tuned!

Has the COVID-19 pandemic affected the Capital Campaign, or how the CAAAS will be used?

The impact of the current pandemic spreads far and wide across our community and beyond. Events that we had scheduled have been canceled or postponed, and meeting in person has been almost impossible. Not least of all, our services to our students, clients, and families were disrupted. However, we were able to put COVID-safety measures in place throughout the building design and are thrilled to have this square footage come online to help us get everyone back to full service.
