First Words of Hope Videos

The First Words of Hope (FWH) Luncheon is an opportunity for St. Gerard House (SGH) to share our mission with you through the eyes of those we serve. The videos presented each year highlight a family whose lives have been changed because of their child’s participation in our program. FWH is also our largest annual fundraising opportunity. SGH relies on your generosity to reduce the financial burden on many families affected by autism. 

The autism rate continues to rise – greater than 1 in 40 children are diagnosed on the spectrum. As demand outpaces capacity, SGH continues to dedicate resources to expand services to reach more families.
