In our second year we had the opportunity to partner with the UC Davis Mind Institute, Children’s Discovery Museum of San Jose, The Special Olympics of Northern California, Support for Families of Children with Disabilities, Parents helping Parents, Farleys East, and the Hemophilia Foundation of Northern California! In addition to this we hosted four social community events for children on the spectrum ages 4-12 and even accomplished our fundraising goal of $2,000! πŸ˜† Autism Social Communities has a platform because of you, and it is because of you We will be able to serve more families impacted by autism and continue to work toward our vision of reducing the 80% unemployment rate amongst the autism population.
