Hill Middle School’s Destination Imagination Team & Firefly

Hill Middle School, A Denver Public School located not too far from Firefly, has chosen Firefly as the focus of their Destination Imagination Challenge.  Destination Imagination is a world-wide organization that encourages teams to compete in imaginative skits.

Hill Middle-schoolers at Firefly on January 22nd

Hill’s team decided to take the challenge to understand a charity and support it. They chose Firefly Autism and named their team the “Smile Flies” .  They came to our Center in Denver on January 22nd and made Valentine cards with children in the Early Childhood Intervention program and also with some of the School Age – Primary program students.

The interactions between the four 8th graders from Hill and our students was terrific.  The Hill students are taking the Valentines back to their school to sell them and donate the proceeds to Firefly.  They will document their experience and present it at their Destination Imagination tournament on March 12th.  Thank you “Smile Flies” for putting smiles on our faces here at Firefly!

Josiah’s Journey

Imagine a world where a child can’t speak the words “I love you” or doesn’t show affection with a simple hug;

Now imagine a world where children and families find hope and support with their child; A place where their child will learn to give and receive that hug and tell a parent “I love you” for the first time.

This video tells the story of how Josiah and his family came to Firefly and achieved just that, and so much more.

Firefly Autism fosters and builds positive change in the lives of so many families.

Please help Firefly continue to help families walk their life-changing paths with your financial support.
