We are starting this non-profit because I have been so very blessed to have an opportunity to work hard and grow a company that not only benefits the lives of others but has also made more money than I thought possible. That money has afforded me the opportunity to do things for my children that I would never have dreamed of. Not only am I in the incredible position where I do not have to worry about the financial future for my children but also where I am able to try and attempt tests, cutting edge treatments, wonderful camps and therapists to better the lives of my boys where they are now and hopefully their future outcomes and success.
Too many families are not in the position that we are in. Too many families face an enormous struggle to just provide the base level of therapy necessary for a special needs child with autism and live in fear of what the future may hold every day. They worry about the medical treatments they have no way to afford. They stretch hard to reach or even pass by incredible summer camps that encourage the children’s growth and also provide desperately needed respite to parents and other family members.
Being the parent of a child affected by autism is way more than just a full-time job. It is a constant struggle of not knowing where to turn, what to try, or what the future may hold. It can also be very isolating when your children are young and even more so as they get older when differences become more noticeable and criticism from people who don’t understand becomes even more harsh.
Our goal is to create a community to support parents of children with autism by providing resources for research, financial support where needed, a place to experience a bit of normal and participate in activities with your children in a supportive environment and connect you with other parents to build and enhance your support structure.
