Location: 8319 W. Pocahontas Avenue Tampa FL 33615 USA

Mission: We are a 501c3 non profit organization dedicated to enlighten, enrich and empower the lives of families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) through our efforts to provide direct programs and services to the community.
Results: We are about to embark upon our 4th year of summer camp on the horse farm and we couldn't be more excited! Due to the generosity of many we were able to create a safe & sensory camp setting for the campers who would normally not have the access to this type of experience. Camp has tripled in size from our first year and we have had the opportunity to help more families than we ever hoped. We are now looking for help from the community and individuals who will help fund the projects of enclosing our own space for the upcoming year and help us to create a gardening project for the children.
Target demographics: Children and young adults with an Autism Spectrum Disorder in the Tampa, Clearwater & St. Petersburg areas.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 50 new children were able to experience our summer camp program. Others benefited from our establishing a sensory friendly monthly playdate! We are grateful to have had so many families enjoyed our FREE sensory friendly 4th Annual Winter Extravaganza Event!
Geographic areas served: Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg
Programs: an inclusive summer camp program on a horse farm for children with ASD and their siblings ages 5-15. Mini-camps during off-school breaks. Sensory/Allergy friendly holiday events for families throughout the year. An adaptive martial arts program for children aged 5-11 to work on balance, speed/agility, hand/eye coordination and basic martial arts. Currently working on creating programs for respite care and agricultural interests.
