Lisa Lane, Executive Director, Project HOPE Foundation
Project HOPE Foundation is a Greenville-based non-profit that provides a lifespan of services for people with autism. Started in 1997 by two moms who were desperately seeking services for their young sons after they were diagnosed with autism, Project HOPE Foundation now serves more than 200 families across the Upstate, providing life-changing ABA therapy for children and young adults on the spectrum.
Autism rates are rising (currently 1 in 59) and the need for services is urgent. Hundreds of children in South Carolina are currently waiting for services, mainly because the Medicaid reimbursement rates for autism therapy in SC are among the lowest in the country. And most funding sources do not cover the cost of providing autism treatment.
