“The Pilot House has been an amazing resource for our entire family. My family has had the great fortune of participating in a lot of the Pilot House programs over the last 6 years- Social Skills/Lunch Bunch for preschoolers, Summer Camp, Parent Support Grouo, Sibshop, Art, Basketball and now the Equestrian Program. Our son Jack has thrived because of the Pilot House and all that it can offer. Everyone at the Pilot House is caring, thoughtful, generous and kind. We are so fortunate to have the Pilot House here in Fairfield as a resource for our family. ”

“Over the years, many things have changed. My little boy has grown and has become a wonderful young man. One thing has remained constant in his life since he was 9 and that is Pilot House. I cannot imagine a life without Pilot House. It has made a huge difference in our son’s life and our family’s life. I have met many other parents who have become my friends. We share common ground and it’s so wonderful to share each other’s stories: our heartbreaks, our joys, our accomplishments. The Pilot House is not just an organization, it’s a family.”

“My son, Matt has been a member of the Pilot House since they first started. We have been happy to support them, for they have made such a difference in his life, as well as ours. He has learned so much, from life skills and cooking, to art, yoga and social skills. The teen program has been such a blessing, as there are so few programs for our children with special needs as they age. Matt has a place to go to, where he has friends and activities that interest him. We are especially excited that there have been opportunities for young adults, such as employment skills and job training. We look forward to continuing with the Pilot House on their journey. They are truly enriching all of our children’s lives.”
