About the event
The 4thannual Autumn in the Atrium brings together the passionate and big-hearted leaders in our community, to celebrate the work of iCan House. The proceeds will be used directly for iCan House’s innovative programs teaching social, communication and life skills for the neurodiverse individuals, and to provide scholarships for those in financial need.
Guests will enjoy food from Salem Kitchen and music by the Karen Kendrick Trio, while participating in silent and live auctions and a wine raffle.
Community engagement and support are essential as the need for the programs and services of iCan House continues to increase. We are particularly grateful to the following sponsors:

About iCan House
At the iCan House, lives are transformed every day. Often, it is at iCan House where a child makes a friend for the first time; a teenager often bullied is accepted by peers; an adult typically rejected has a social life with others; a parent feeling isolated meets another who understands; a student intern learns and sees the impact of our programs in real life.
Proceeds from the luncheon benefit the iCan House to provide scholarships and programs for those with social challenges. iCan House provides support, training, and coaching in developing the “soft skills” so crucial for success in employment, school, and for personal and financial independence. Participant range from 8 years old through all ages of adulthood, all backgrounds, socio-economic level, ethnicities and beliefs. Programs are offered after-school hours for those who “fall through the cracks” and who, for various reasons, do not receive services in traditional settings.
Although no diagnosis is required to attend iCan House programs, many of the individuals have been diagnosed with anxiety, ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome, high functioning autism, learning disabilities, and related social challenges.
The iCan House prides itself on celebrating neurodiversity knowing we’re all wired differently. iCan recognizes that people process information in different ways and one way is not more “correct” than another. We support neurodiversity by writing and using specialized curriculum to teach communication and social skills.
iCan House fills a unique niche in the Winston-Salem community, serving individuals with unrealized potential and who with instruction, coaching, and ongoing support, can become contributing members of society, all while achieving more independence in life and making friends.
Tickets are available for purchase both online for $50 and at the door for $55.
All funds received will be used to provide programs for children, teens and adults and
scholarships for those with financial needs. For more information on sponsorship packages click the button below.
