Our Auction Is back in-person and we can't wait to see you!

I am so grateful for the compassionate teachers, therapists, and aides that work side by side with my daughter every day!

The progress in the first three months of  Sophia attending Bornhava’s Early Intervention classroom at age 2 was a complete 180 from home Early Intervention she started to receive at three weeks old. Today she is 4 1/2 and she can feed herself and ask for things when she would only point to or sign for three years ago.

Bornhava gave her the tools and confidence to grow and succeed in her next chapter. Bornhava not only held my child’s hand through her journey they held her mother’s hand to.

Sincerely, Melissa Dublino

About Bornhava

For more than 36 years, Bornhava has provided therapeutic and educational services to over 10,000 children from the ages of birth to 5 years old with developmental disabilities. Whether at home, at our main campus, or at one of our integrated locations throughout Western New York, Bornhava’s nurturing, play-based approach helps to provide the foundation for differently-abled children to thrive and grow into valued members of the community.

Beyond the classroom, we help families navigate the challenging moments and often confusing obstacles in their lives—together. To us, everyone that walks through our doors is part of our family.

As we strive to provide the best in care and services available to our children and their families, we know that we can’t do it on our own. The funding we receive from the state only covers 80% of our operational costs. That’s where our annual auction comes in! We rely on the generosity of our amazing community to help us bridge this gap!

At Bornhava, we see amazing things happen every day—and we’d love for you to be a part of it. Thank you for your interest in supporting us and for helping to further our efforts.
