Organization: Rochester Center for Children

Sector: Commerce

Organization Mission: In 2004 two therapists decided to open a Center that would provide therapy for children with Autism. They would contract with professionals and would provide the therapy on their own. They soon realized that the need for services in the Rochester area was greater than what they had prepared for. They grew quickly from two initial students to ten by the end of the first year. Today the Rochester Center for Autism provides therapy and support for over 70 children with Autism and their families. The therapists who opened the Center continue to own and operate the business. The Rochester Center for Autism is family owned and operated. The Center strives to create a nurturing environment where everyone can succeed, students and staff! The first three therapists that were hired continue to work at the Center as Supervisors. Our philosophy is that if you are happy, everyone has a better chance of succeeding.

Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.
