The Autism Hero Project seeks to improve the lives of children with autism, people otherwise on the autism spectrum, and their families through providing financial assistance for Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapeutic services, helping others understand autism-related needs in everyday life, and promoting more than just awareness among communities. We strive to create a world of inclusion,
where ALL means ALL.

THE AUTISM HERO PROJECT INAUGURAL FUNDRAISER DINNER

The Autism Hero Project (AHP) invites you to become “HEROES” who can truly make a significant difference in the lives of children with autism. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go toward a medical insurance fund to help these children gain access to ABA therapy and other options to help them communicate and develop friendships—all ingredients to lead healthy, happy and productive lives. So many families cannot afford what is considered an out of pocket expense to get the therapy their children need and AHP gives them the resources to make therapy affordable. Last year, AHP raised $45,000 to help children on the autism spectrum because of HEROES like you.

partner with us

The Autism Hero Project loves to partner with local businesses to bring awareness about autism to all of their employees and how to best serve the autism community.  In addition, we believe that it is not enough to be aware about autism as it is to create a world of inclusion by highlighting the many talents of adults on the autism spectrum available for hire.
