BCNC獲自閉症基金會捐款一萬元

BCNC RECEIVES GRANT FROM DOUG FLUTIE, JR. FOUNDATION FOR AUTISM FOR $10,000

Boston, MA – Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center (BCNC) is pleased to announce it has received a $10,000 grant from the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism.

These funds will support BCNC Family Services. BCNC Family Services supports Chinese immigrant families in Boston and Quincy with an emphasis on families of children with autism through parent education workshops, family support groups, music therapy, and case management services which help families access social services, counseling, and other needed referrals. With bilingual and bicultural staff who understand the culture of program participants, BCNC is uniquely positioned to serve Chinese immigrant families affected by autism, many of whom do not otherwise access mainstream services.

BCNC parent shares, “BCNC has a huge impact on my family and other families with Autism in the community. Thanks to the Flutie Foundation, my daughter is able to attend music therapy group.”


The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism awards grants annually through a competitive application and review process. The grants that the Flutie Foundation distributes each year help to support family-focused programs in three key areas: promoting active lifestyles, improving access to services, and enhancing the independence of adults with autism.
