Programs & Past Events
Autism Play Date
We had a great time getting together with other autism families.The children played with balloons and enjoyed playing Roblox together on their devices. The parents were able to spend time socializing together too!
In 2021, we donated approximately 12 Easter Baskets to families. The baskets were all made from donations. The children were definitely happy to receive the goodies.
Annual Heroes for Autism 5k and Mile
The annual race is fun for everyone! There were vendors available to share information about the services they provide. An inflatable bounce house obstacle course provided entertainment for the kids. Our special guests, Gateway Superfriends, were superheros who posed for many pictures with our participants.
Christmas giveaways bring such joy to so many children. Thanks to generous donations, we are able to support families with Christmas gifts.
We began donating sensory boxes during the pandemic to support families. Many children have needed to have a distraction from being stuck indoors as parents struggled financially. We have been able to provide some entertainment and educational items as a result of generous donations.
We have hosted educational webinars to provide information on a variety of topics important to families and anyone wanting to understand therapeutic options and autism.
