The fundraised dollars go to Amgeo. Adam, 30, has found a home and a life with this service. Years prior to Amgeo, there were 20 years of programs that hurt Adam's progress more than anyone thought possible. Now, Amgeo lets Adam live his best life happily. The people who care for him are his close friends and this progam has done an amazing job helping him every single day.
Amego is committed to supporting people living with autism and other developmental disabilities at home, school, work, and as a members of their families and communities. Amego's story begins with one adolescent diagnosed with autism whose parents refused to accept an institutional placement. In 1971, the Sangree Stokes family founded Amego. Today, Amego has grown to include 42 private residential homes, a fully accredited school, two day habilitation programs, a community centered employment program, early intervention services, home-based services for children, and a team of dedicated professionals. Amego touches the lives of more than 400 families in Massachusetts, offering services for both children and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders and other developmental disabilities.
