and Services

PITTSBURGH, Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The Children's Institute announced the launch of the public phase of The Campaign for an Amazing Future, a $30 million comprehensive campaign. As the premier provider of pediatric rehabilitation services in western Pennsylvania, The Children's Institute will use the funds to support acquisition of and renovations to their Squirrel Hill facility, introduction and enhancement of programs and services, and start-up funds for applied research and for a scholarship fund for tuition assistance.

The Campaign has been well launched with early gifts totaling $15 million, including $12 million from friends of The Children's Institute and more than $3 million in state funding. "We're very excited about our future at The Children's Institute," says David K. Miles, MEd, MPM, President and CEO of The Children's Institute. "The Children's Institute is being asked to do more to adequately serve the needs in our community-to provide a greater level and number of services to more children. The Campaign for an Amazing Future will allow us to accomplish these goals."

Specifically, the funds are supporting the creation of a leading-edge Center for Autism, which will be used to implement and study innovative and integrated treatment and education models for children with autism. Additionally, a pediatric unit has been added to provide pediatric respite, palliative and hospice care.

The funds also will support the development of programs to further treat and research critical areas of pediatric care, such as autism and childhood obesity.

A scholarship fund will also be established to ensure children with special needs continue to receive a quality education at The Day School at The Children's Institute.

"The Children's Institute is, and has been, a significant resource for children, families,
