Dear Friends,

This Spring was full of workshops, family friendly events, and fundraising - which allowed us to gear up for a great summer! We hope to see you at some of our events and offerings this summer!  Here are some highlights:
  • Our annual grant program opens July 1st! All completed applications are due no later than August 31st to be considered.
  • Bike to the Beach has provided a generous sponsorship so we can bring you I Can Bike! camp.  This camp is for individuals with autism, ages 8 and older who would like to ride a bike.  Space is very limited and we are in need of volunteers for the week!
  • Please join us at one of our fundraising events to help ensure we can continue to offer resources, programs, and financial supports to the local Autism community! 
As always, I am optimistic that together we can continue to make a difference in the lives of local individuals with ASD and their families. Please continue to offer your ideas, suggestions, and support. I look forward to hearing from you!
