Autos for Autism was started in 2016 with the focus toward community support to foster awareness and provide personal growth opportunities for individuals with special needs and their families, including local scholarships. In 2020, Autos for Autism became established as a nonprofit organization. Although Autism is growing more prevalent in our country, Autos for Autism seeks to provide awareness of and resources for families of all special needs children.
People with Autism are awesome and an asset to our community. They are diligent, hardworking and truthful. Yet, their differences can be a challenge to relate to. The organization is grateful to the parents, teachers, peers, coaches and volunteers who are able to look past the differences and enjoy our children.
Autos for Autism recognizes the growing number of people with autism in our city and in our nation. Learn more about autism and existing resources for parenting a child with autism, visit our website at autosforautism.org or follow the organization on Facebook.
