Neighbors Helping Neighbors in Support of Local Autism Community
NEPTUNE CITY, N.J. (May 12, 2023) — In support of the local Autism community, Coral Harbor Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center recently donated two sensory kits to the Neptune City Police Department. Assembled by the POAC Autism Services, a not-for-profit organization in Brick, N.J., the kits will help first responders in their interactions with autistic children and adults, and those with sensory needs.
The donation is part of the skilled nursing facility’s continuing focus on neighbors helping neighbors. “Our team is focused on caring – both within our center and within the larger Neptune City community,” said Carolyn Zeh, Coral Harbor’s administrator. “These kits are a crucial way to assist the police and increase understanding and support of those with Autism and other sensory needs.”
According to the CDC, about one in 36 children are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The condition affects people of all racial, ethnic and socio-economic groups. The Coral Harbor donation was made in honor of Autism Acceptance Month, celebrated annually in April, which promotes acceptance of the condition and empowers everyone in the Autism community to live fully.
Coral Harbor, which is located at 2050 6th Avenue, provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care. The facility maintains a five-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
