Since 2001, CECO has been providing hope for families that have been searching for the place where the impossible IS possible. CECO offers a special needs school day kindergarten through 12th grade, summer camp, early intervention ages 6 months to 4 years old and walking challenge program.

Conductive Education is a unique, holistic educational approach to help children with Cerebral Palsy and other motor disabilities achieve their greatest level of independence through physical and cognitive activities.

We welcome families and our community friends to stop by and tour our facility...see how hard the children work on a daily basis to obtain their greatest potential.

CECO has successful partnerships with many corporations and businesses and extends their thanks to two of their recent supporters

Grant from the Universal Foundation

Our most sincere thanks goes out to the Universal Orlando Foundation, an organization whose mission is to make a positive impact in Central Florida. Their $20,000 grant will certainly make a positive impact here at CECO! Thank you for helping us transform lives.

accesso provides cutting edge queuing and ticketing technology solutions to theme parks and attractions worldwide. accesso’s CEO, Steve Brown, and its largest office with almost 150 employees are based in Lake Mary. accesso is growing significantly and is challenged to fill their mostly tech positions in their Lake Mary office and their other offices around the world. Brown and Maura Schiefelbein, accesso’s VP of Organizational Effectiveness and Talent Development, recognize that support and involvement in the local community is not only the right thing to do but is critical to employee loyalty and recruitment.

So, accesso has begun by implementing an employee engagement program in the Lake Mary office that includes three important elements:

• a goal of participating in a group volunteer project each quarter,

• a committee called accesso cares made up of employees who decide what issues and non-profits the company will support, and

• a policy that gives all employees 8 hours of paid time off annually to volunteer in their local communities to a cause that is important to them personally.

Recent group efforts have included volunteering to provide and make lunch at the Ronald McDonald House, visiting with the residents of a local retirement community, and this month participating globally in the Walk for Freedom, which supports the abolishment of human trafficking. Individual efforts via the Volunteer Time Off benefit have ranged from walking dogs at a local shelter, to working to reduce food waste by helping secure food donations from restaurants and getting them to those in need.

accesso also shows its commitment to the local community by donating funds and in-kind resources to important local issues, including joining other companies from the local Tech community to donate $100,000 to the OneOrlando fund.

Brown and Schiefelbein have received very positive feedback from their efforts to create an employee-centric social responsibility program and are now focused on expanding the program to their other offices around the world and becoming more strategic in their future community investments - leveraging their unique skills, resources, and networks to have a lasting impact in the communities where they live and work.

Financial institutions, especially smaller community banks, seem to be on the leading edge of community investment and social responsibility. They understand that a stronger community means a stronger business and the importance of a brand that says we care.

BB&T is not a local community bank. Based in NC, it is one of the largest financial services holding companies in the U.S. with over 1,800 centers in 12 states and D.C. However, BB&T’s Lighthouse Project demonstrates that they also understand that it is critical to keep your community investments local.

The BB&T Lighthouse Project provides corporate financial support to local charities, but the decision of where to donate time and money is made in the local markets. Associates in the local branches get involved landscaping, painting, preparing meals and more. Since the Lighthouse Project began in 2009, associates have contributed more than 385,000 volunteer hours and improved the quality of life for more than 11 million people.

Chris Rolle, Orlando Market President and Senior Vice President, says that it is very unusual but very important for corporations to invest in all the communities where they operate and to let the local offices decide how to give back to their community where they live and work.

Two recent BB&T projects in Orlando are: a renovation of the Fire Safety House at the Children’s Safety Village and assistance with a new school and programs at CECO, a K-12 school for kids with special needs. The renovation of the Fire Safety House, which is used by volunteer firefighters to teach children about fire safety, allowed the associates to roll up their sleeves and really see the difference they could make.

People and businesses decide where to give based on their interests, their skills, and their connections. BB&T’s partnership with CECO was a result of a connection with a CECO board member. They provided financial and volunteer assistance to CECO as they built and set up programs for existing students and expanded their programs for high school and adult students in their new building.

Rolle is very proud of the work he and his team have done in the community. He is looking to be even more organized and strategic in their future community investment, leveraging their unique skills and network with partnerships, in-kind resources, and the time and talent of their associates to have a lasting impact in the community.

Change Giving, a Fundraising/Micro Giving App that lets you donate your spare change to fundraising campaigns and charities, launches recently in our own Winter Garden. With Change Giving, you can simplify the way you give by donating a little with everyday purchases you already make.

Co-Founders Chris Chan, Tony Largura and Andrew Sheeter put on an incredible launch party in Downtown Winter Garden at Crooked Can Brewing Company. We were honored to celebrate with some amazing local charities Fuzzy Therapy Miniature Horses, Inc. and A Cause 4 Paws Rescue. The best part about getting to share Change Giving with everyone was being able to share these 2 charities stories at the same time. Everyone at the party downloaded the app and started following both charities fundraising campaigns. We also had amazing support from all the vendors at Plant St. Market, with over $250 worth of gifts given for a raffle giveaway!
