A Word from Our CEO: Celebrating a Year!


Dear Friends,

Since being named CEO on January 30, 2017, I continue to be impressed with our talented teachers and staff who are entrusted with the care of children and adults with autism. Here are some of the highlights and successes we celebrated over the year:

– we have shared joy, laughter and sorrows by welcoming new clients and staff and remembering and saying farewell to others,

– we have opened an 11th classroom which is designed to strengthen our vocational training to transition students into a work environment,

– we converted to an Office 365 cloud-based environment and took steps to update and stabilize our information technology systems,

– while other schools were closed, we provided respite services after Hurricane Harvey and over the winter break,

– as we look to the future of Avondale House and our projected growth, we have hired a full-time human resources position to support our team, and

– our board and staff have been working to formulate a strategic plan for the agency over the next three and a half years to expand our school services, develop comprehensive and integrated adult services, and increase our brand awareness and philanthropy efforts.

I invite you to join me in celebrating the resources that we offer to the greater Houston community. It is an exciting time to be a part of Avondale House!

Steve Vetrano
Chief Executive Officer
