Harwood Center and Les Passees believe in hands on strategies for helping special needs children. We hope that our support will give then a jump start in their new location on the campus of the University of Memphis (U of M) that merged Specialized Education teachers and Certified Behavior Analysts. By the end of 2021, the program will have a permanent home after renovating an 8,000 sq foot building on campus in order to reach and assist more children in the Memphis area.
