April is Autism Awareness Month. What better way to show your support and respect for those living with an Autism Spectrum Disorder then to participate in ASRC’s Walk for Autism, Connecticut’s only Autism Walk where 100% of the proceeds stay in CT.
The Walk is ASRC’s most important annual fundraising initiative to support our mission.
How Does ASRC use the Proceeds?
We help individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families living in CT in many ways including but not limited to:
- Connecting Families to Existing Resources
- Benefits Counseling
- Annual Resource Fair
- Annual Building Bridges Conference on Autism
- Peer Mentoring
- Recreational Events for Teens and Adults
- Legislative and Public Advocacy
- Family Supports and Counseling
- Information Networks
Why Do We Need Continued Resources?
Connecticut is in a financial crisis statewide and non-profits like ASRC are struggling. Foundations are receiving requests for funding at an unprecedented pace and local organizations that normally support local organizations just don’t have the resources.
In the past we have offered trainings including First Responder Training and Autism Bootcamps, but due to budget cuts, we have not been able to offer these and other important trainings. We want ASRC to expand and grow our supports and services but we need your help!
