Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Autism, Disabilities, Health

Mission: The goal of ASDF is to support children with an autism spectrum disorder by providing information, education and financial assistance to their families and relevant community service organizations. Funds donated to ASDF will be used to address any and all kinds of issues in assisting children with autism and their families. By providing financial assistance to families and autism-specific organizations, together we are able to give autistic children and their families the resources they need to grow. In addition, we spread awareness by providing Early Detection Kits, free of charge, to individuals and agencies who work with infants, toddlers and preschool children. In the past five years, ASDF has provided direct financial assistance to approximately 1,427 families who have children on the autism spectrum. The financial assistance went for camp scholarships, iPads for children who are nonverbal, swimming lessons, horse therapy lessons and holiday gift cards. During the same period of time, we provided autism awareness information to approximately 2,478,000 new mothers across the United States through our autism awareness program.

Programs: The foundation educates the public about autism; provides families tools and educational materials to assist in the early detection of autism as well as tools to treat children suffering from autism; and provides families of people suffering from autism with information on programs available to assist them.

the foundation provides financial assistance to the families and relevent community service organizations that help people suffering from autism.

I am so thankful for the work that this organization does. I teach students with autism who are on an adapted curriculum and three of my students' families with low-income were recipients of the Christmas donation this year. It is such a blessing to know that these students are able to have much-needed Christmas presents regardless of parent/guardian economic status. Thank you!!!!!!

Without a question ASDF is one of the biggest blessing I could have received this year. Without them my children would not have had the chance to have a Christmas at all. I was able to buy a few presents and to have a holiday dinner. I even had enough left to get a much needed twin mattress for my son. ASDF has also helped my kids go to summer camp. Through there grants to Parker Autism Foundation my kids are able to attend Camp Dakota. So thank you ASDF for your partnership with PAF. My family could not do this without both of you.

What a wonderful organization. They helped to provide our family with the much needed finances for summer camp programs and for Holiday help. They have helped us for several years through Parker Autism and we could not thank them enough for all they do. Our son is none verbal and needs a special camp and the funding they provide allows him to attend an awesome camp. Thank you for all you do and thank you to those who donate.

ASDF has been a blessing to my family and so many more families. They provide my children with camp scholarships, an Ipad and helped this year with Christmas. I am a single mom of four and I would not be able to provide a Christmas for my children without your partnership with PAF. PAF is a blessing to us as you are to us and so many more. Please continue to support PAF for they do great things. You help them do all they do. Your grants and donations provide help to so many. Bless you.
