Why do we aRace for Resourcesa┬Ł?
We Race to raise funds to provide Resources, services, and activities, to people with autism and other disabilities to help them gain independence and provide social opportunities enriching their lives today and building them a brighter tomorrow.
What does Autism Cares Foundation do?
Our Adult Services Division provides programs where participants enhance their life skills to develop greater independence. We are a licensed provider of a Community Participation Program (aka: Day Habilitation Program), a Home and Community Program, and Supported Employment (available in the future).
We also provide programs and activities for adults through our 21+ Friends Group. These groups are geared toward those with varying levels of independence and self-direction. Community excursions, cultural activities, volunteerism, and athletics are but a few of the many opportunities offered.
For younger children and teens, Autism Cares Foundation provides an abundance of activities annually geared to various age groups and includes movies, themed dances, fitness program, singing, trampoline parks, and much more.
We support hundreds of people in our communities including your employees, friends, neighbors and perhaps your loved ones providing opportunities and choices for social outings, activities, and parental/care-provider resources and networking.
