Joplin Couple Donates $3 Million to Rebuild Local Autism Center

JOPLIN, Mo. — Holding back tears, Amanda Dillard explained how the instructors at the Ozark Center for Autism had helped her autistic daughters, Reagan and Savannah, progress in ways she never dreamed possible.
On Tuesday, she told Bill and Virginia Leffen, of Joplin, that their donation of $3 million to fund the rebuilding of the center means more to the parents of autistic children than just the construction of a building.
“This donation gives us hope,” she said. “I can’t say enough about that.”
