You can be a hero to young people with
Autism Spectrum Disorder!
Your donation can help us match $10,000.
There are some estimates that autism costs society $137 billion per year. It also impact families – families who may not have the resources for services that fall between the cracks of medical insurance and school resources.
That’s where Abrazos comes in. Here are just a few of the ways our Autism Services have a positive impact on local families like Brenna and her mom. Our organized recreation programs help increase social interaction opportunities. They provide increased opportunities for communication through play and interacting with peers. And, they allow children to engage in physical activities to increase motor skills and help enhance a child’s self-esteem.
Just as importantly, our programs give parents a chance to relax and take care of themselves so that they can be better caregivers.
But we can’t do it by ourselves. We need YOUR help! As the state has eliminated funding for children with autism, we need donors like you to keep our programs going.
This is your opportunity to be a HERO. Your donation impacts not only children and their families, but ultimately it helps our larger society as well!
Make your secure donation to Abrazos Family Support Services today – it will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000 thanks to the Anderson Charitable Foundation.
Brenna’s skills in social and academic areas are far below grade level. It takes an enormous amount of patience and repetition to master basic skills. We witnessed steady improvements all year long. We see her communicating more effectively, participating more appropriately in social games/activities (even initiating activities with others!), and feel she is more empathetic to others than she was before beginning this program. These skill improvements surely will be a positive influence on her academic success as inappropriate behaviors often interfere with her ability to complete assignments.
Yes, I want to support Autism Services for local children!
