Grow Our Initiatives

With your help we can continue to grow the opportunities, lives, and future for all with autism! See the difference you can make!

Attend an Event

There are so many great workshops, family outings, and fundraisers that happen all year long. Attending an event is a great way to learn even more, raise funds, help promote awareness, and just have fun! There is something for everyone!

Some of the community events are listed here.

Support Our Fundraisers

We have several fundraisers throughout the year that we would love for you to be a part of! Each one is fun, different, and changes the lives of those in our community. We partner with the Medical Mutual Glass City Marathon to Conquer the Possible¬†or celebrate our families and successes at The Party IS! Can’t attend an event this year? You can still make a difference and have a chance at a dream vacation during our Hawaii Raffle!
