Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana and Coushatta Casino Resort Donate $5,000 Sponsorship Benefiting Autism Services of Southwest Louisiana
November 2, 2017
The Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana and Coushatta Casino Resort donated a $5,000 sponsorship to Autism Services of Southwest Louisiana for their “Autism Goes Country!” auction fundraiser to be held Sunday, November 5, 2017.
Founded in 2003 by current President Geri Christ Landry, Autism Services of Southwest Louisiana is a non-profit agency founded by family members of adults with autism. It remains the first and only agency to provide homes in Louisiana that serve specifically adults with autism. The agency was founded on the belief that persons within the autism spectrum, although having a wide range of differing abilities, have the capacity for growth and development; that every individual has the right to services that enhance well-being, quality of life, and provide opportunities to learn according to one’s capacity; that each should have access to the least restrictive social and physical environments consistent with their needs. Future plans are to expand the number of living environments and supportive services available to other adults with autism.
Coushatta Casino Resort is located in Kinder, Louisiana on US Highway 165 (I-10 exit 44) and features over 2,000 slots and more than 65 table games including live poker, plus live bingo and off-track betting. Phone 800-584-7263 for more information or visit the website at www.ccrla.com.
