HUBER HEIGHTS — Hearts for ABA is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a very generous grant of $33,600 from the Montgomery County Solid Waste District, to purchase a playground made from recycled materials.

This playground is made from recycled plastics, aluminum and steel. The rubber surface under the playset is made from 100% recycled tires. This playground was constructed by Walnut Grove Fence & Playground Company.

Thanks go to the Montgomery County Solid Waste District; Barbara Asberry, Business Program Specialist; Ron Thomas, Walnut Grove Fence & Playground, and workers; and the staff, families and friends of Hearts for ABA that helped make this playground a reality

On Friday, July 21, from 5-7 p.m. Hearts for ABA will have the playground grand opening and our annual open house cookout, for our students, staff, families, and friends.

Hearts for ABA was started by Nichol Morey (Owner, Executive Director). It is a learning center for children with autism and other developmental disabilities. Hearts for ABA teaches these children the skills necessary to improve their quality of life to the highest potential for themselves and their families. It is structured to provide every child within the autism spectrum disorder, and other developmental disorders, a more appropriate foundation in the areas of academics, communication, behavior, daily living skills, social skills and independence. Their goal is to promote a higher quality of life and capture the fullest potential of each child.
