Representatives of Glenwood Autism and Behavioral Center broke ground May 4 on its latest expansion project, three new homes for the organization’s residents that will be built by Capstone Collegiate Communities.
Of the 125 adults and children for whom Glenwood provides residences, 91 live on-campus at the facility adjacent to Liberty Park in Vestavia Hills. With the addition of the Hope Cottages, the organization will be able to accommodate 16 more residents.
“We are fortunate to have the support of Capstone. Their contribution will do much more than provide a home for people with autism; it will fundamentally change the lives of entire families,” Philip Young, Glenwood’s capital campaign co-chair, board member and parent of a child with autism who lives at Glenwood, said in a released statement.
