My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Autism Society of Indiana, Carmel, IN, USA
The cornerstone of ASI - it's most visible, direct way that it helps families -- is the Allies program. As a part-time volunteer, I have seen from the inside how this program works, and how many people ASI helps. There are allies around the state, helping families deal with the diagnosis of a child, a school district, finding a good speech therapist, the right approach to help a child socialize, find employment -- you name it. The Allies program is amazing because each Ally is a parent of a child with autism, so they have been there. But they also must pledge to be neutral, to share advice but to also make families aware of various options for a given type of service or support, even thought they may have their biases. It is these criteria -- that the Allies are parents affected and that they pledge to share unbiased information -- that makes this organization incredible. Oh, and the fact that there is no charge for families!
