SARRC Community School Activity Preparation

The Southwest Autism Research & Resource Center (SARRC) is an internationally recognized nonprofit that conducts innovative research and provides evidence-based practices and training to build inclusive communities for individuals with autism and their families.

Desert Financial team members visited SARRC’s new community school in Scottsdale to help prepare pre-planned activities for the students. SARRC provided the supplies and instructions for the activities, and our volunteers supported the teachers so they could focus on their students.
