AUTISM COMMUNITY RELIEF
The special needs community has been left to navigate this pandemic without the assistance of a variety of physical, speech, occupational and intellectual therapists.
Children with autism function best within a routine, and now their lives have been turned upside down and they are left with parents struggling to find a routine for their academics and therapies. Some parents of autistic children are in need of food, utility assistance, technology learning assistance for their children and sensory items to keep the children entertained. There are a number of under served families who do not have access to outdoor play areas in light of the parks being closed and the social distancing mandate. There are various obstacles for parents and their children to access much needed services, the ability to shop without their children and obtain essential survival items and food as well as child care and respite services.
These under served families are in desperate need of support during the Covid-19 pandemic. HELP US, HELP THEM!
We are providing food and delivering it to under served families impacted by autism, providing technology to assist with distance learning and sensory toys or devices to help with entertainment and burning off energy. If possible, we want to provide tele-health mental health support for parents and find a facility that can support families with respite services and therapy.
If your family is in need please provide your specific request for assistance and we will diligently work to meet your need as funds are available. All donations received from outside of Missouri will support families nationwide unless otherwise designated.
