Milestones Development Center for Autism of IRC

In July 2015, Florida Archery Foundation launched a pilot program for youth and families involved in the Milestones Developmental Center for Autism of Indian River County.  The purpose of Milestones is to serve individuals with autism, giving them opportunities to enhance their quality of life and helping them be a part of society instead of simply bystanders.
