Town of Babylon Supervisor Rich Schaffer and Deputy Supervisor Tony Martinez recently attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the planned Winters Center for Autism in West Babylon. The 14,000 square-foot facility is located near the Winters Brothers Waste Systems building and other key Town of Babylon businesses, giving participants the ability to take part in vocational training and community-based work. The center’s proximity to a fitness center will also give attendees the opportunity to partake in exercise classes and explore personal training opportunities.
The Winters Center for Autism was established in 2019 by Joe Winters and his wife Michele. Joe Winters, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Winters Bros. Joe and his wife, Michele, along with the entire Winters family are strong advocates for high-quality services and opportunities for individuals with autism. Joe and Michele’s son, Sean Winters, is impacted by autism, which effects 1 in 54 children in the U.S.
