This year marks the 50th Anniversary of Al Sigl Community of Agencies’ flagship campus on Elmwood Avenue. Justin Vigdor, Al Sigl’s Founding Board Chair, has seen our agencies grow from serving 3,000 people to serving over 55,000 children and adults and their families on six campuses.
Reflecting on the anniversary, Mr. Vigdor shared:
“In 1968, our dream was realized as the doors opened at Elmwood and South to welcome people of all ages and abilities to learn, grow and have their needs addressed. With no existing model to follow, a dedicated group of parents, advocates, and community volunteers explored new ways of thinking about collaboration, accessibility, and the demonstrated need to help people with special needs and their families. The final result was a fully-accessible building, the very first of its kind, with spaces adaptable to the unique needs of each agency, along with shared spaces open to all. Over the years, as our agencies grew, so did the number of campuses, each uniquely designed to adapt to the needs of the people so well served there. I’m honored to have been a part of this story.”
Please join Justin Vigdor and the entire Al Sigl Community of Agencies as we celebrate this 50 year milestone.
Your ROC the Day gift will help thousands of kids and adults of all abilities right here in our community.
