2022 was a remarkable year for Autism Evansville.
Our nonprofit organization gained a new Executive Director.
We welcomed Kelsey Schapker in May, as Schapker solely planned and successfully executed our Taking Steps for Autism Walk & 5K in April of this year, raising thousands of dollars for our organization, which in turn helped award vouchers to families, and allowed us to host Family Fun Events, Support Groups, and a Dad's Group.
We held two events at SkyZone, as well as events at Walther's Golf & Fun, High Score Player Two and cMoe.
Sensory Friendly Movie Day in August, Night Out for Special Needs in October and Sensory Friendly Santa in December were also three new, successful events we hosted this year!
Thanks to VisualRush Website & Design, they re-designed our website to make it easier to navigate. We encourage you to check it out - autismevansville.org - along with our Facebook page, Autism Evansville, to stay up-to-date on events & announcements.
Now available: sensory kits for families! To order, go to our website, click on Resources, then click Order Sensory Kits.
One of Schapker's goals for Autism Evansville was to create community partnerships in order to bring awareness and acceptance in the tri-state to the hundreds of families who are raising a child on the spectrum.
