The Germantown Knights of Columbus, Council 7449, recently presented The ANGEL Program Fund with a check in the amount of $2,500. These funds will be used for technology, facility and operating expenses and upgrades.

Since its founding in 2010, The ANGEL Program has helped dozens of children living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Holy Rosary School has served as the home for the program, providing a loving, inclusive environment for these students in a Catholic environment. Unfortunately, ASD is growing at an extremely fast pace and now affects 1 in 68 children, affecting four times as many boys than girls. The ANGEL Program remains the only private school program in Memphis that provides an inclusive yet intensive Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) program for students ages 3-11.
