Our center is named in memory of William A. Presti

Who demonstrated by example, a non-judgmental attitude toward all he knew. His unconditional acceptance of everyone he knew is our mission. We will treat everyone with the dignity and respect they deserve. William gave unselfishly to children and appreciated their individual gifts. Like William, we believe that all people have the right to live their life on their own terms and without emotional pain.
