Poised for Growth – Second Site to Open Later this Year
A second clinic site has been a dream long in the making for the Potential team. Now, that dream is about to be realized with the recent acquisition of a new Bucks County location.
In May, Potential signed a lease on a 4,118-square-foot-space at 626 Jacksonville Rd. in Warminster. The site, which is located in the Altimari office complex, will feature five client rooms, a playroom, library/toy room, a private entrance, and plenty of additional space for storage, administration, and future growth. Nearby amenities include Costco, Mission BBQ and other restaurants, as well as several public parks—all great options for skill-based outings for our clients.
“It’s always been my desire to provide quality autism services for as many people as possible,” shares Potential Founder, President and CEO Kristine Quinby. “There is a long wait list for these services in our region and while this new site won’t eliminate the list, it will help bring us one step closer.”
Over the next few months, the space will be retrofitted to meet the needs of approximately 20 clients a week. The estimated cost of this effort is $87K and it will be paid for largely through donations and proceeds from Potential’s 5th Annual Car Show for Autism in October. Quinby says that she expects the site to be ready for use by late summer with grand opening celebrations tentatively planned for September 22 and 23.
In the interim, Potential is aggressively recruiting new staff to fill this and a future site. “Our hope is to add one additional site by 2022,” adds Quinby. “Having a well-trained, dedicated team is vital to this effort.”
