AutismUp at Golisano Autism Center


Golisano Autism Center logo

AutismUp is partnering with Al Sigl Community of Agencies and CP Rochester to build the new Golisano Autism Center. The Center will expand and enhance autism services to serve more than 10,000 people diagnosed with autism in the Greater Rochester and surrounding areas. The Center officially opened on September 12, 2019 and AutismUp relocated its programming, services, and staff to the new location.

The 30,500-square-foot project was made possible by a $5 million gift from businessman-philanthropist Tom Golisano and a $5 million investment from the University of Rochester.

We are still AutismUp and haven't changed what we do or our mission to support families — we are just getting bigger in a new location!
