UTICA, N.Y. – In honor of Autism Awareness Month, the Kelberman Center is recognizing families that support the organization and raise awareness for autism.

Wyatt Humpf, of Holland Patent, was diagnosed with autism in 2007, and receives self-direction services through the Kelberman Center. Over the past several years, Wyatt has participated in the clubs and activities offered in the self-direction program.

According to the Kelberman Center’s website, the self-direction program provides three professionals to support the individual and their family in making decisions and creating an annual service budget.

Wyatt’s older brothers, Dalton and Cooper, and his parents, Bob and Mindi, are all active in supporting Wyatt and the center.

Bob and Mindi have been spreading awareness in their community since they participated in their first Walk for Autism. Dalton also held a bowling event to raise funds for the Kelberman Center in 2009. The bowl-a-thon has become a tradition that Cooper now continues, raising more than $4,000 for the center.

"We continue to raise money so that other families can utilize the activities and services at the Kelberman Center,” said Cooper.

Since the bowl-a-thon cannot be held this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, Cooper has organized a bottle and can drive to raise money.

For more information on the drive, or other programs and services at the Kelberman Center, email Kelly Carinci at: kelly.carinci@kelbermancenter.org.
