About Us

Golisano Autism Center

AutismUp is a proud Founding Partner, along with Al Sigl Community of Agencies and CP Rochester, of the Golisano Autism Center. The Center was designed and created to coordinate and expand access to autism services for 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 an initial $2.5 million challenge gift from businessman-philanthropist Tom Golisano and a $500,000 grant by the Golisano Foundation towards a $9 million capital campaign.
