Mission: Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) is a national non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to educating, empowering and supporting families affected by autism. For families who have just received the autism diagnosis, TACA aims to speed up the cycle time from the autism diagnosis to effective treatments. TACA helps to strengthen the autism community by connecting families and the professionals who can help them, allowing them to share stories and information to help improve the quality of life for people with autism.
Results: TACA currently serves 48,000 families living with autism nationwide. We provide REAL HELP NOW to families and 95% of our programs and services are provided at no cost to families.
Target demographics: The 1 in 68 children and their families affected by autism
Direct beneficiaries per year: 48,000 people through our outreach and programs.
Geographic areas served: Providing education, support, information and a community across the nation.
Programs: Parent Education and Support through:
Chapter Meetings & Coffee Talks
Education Events, Autism Journey Guides
Website, Support Hotline & Live-Chat Services

TACA is the perfect example of how every nonprofit should operate. 95% of monies go directly into programs and support that help families dealing with autism. I used to give to Autism Speaks but stopped when I learned how much money is wasted on administrative expenses and sickened to learn how little Autism Speaks actually uses their funds to help those living with autism today.
If you want to make a difference, this is the nonprofit for you. These dedicated individuals (mostly volunteer) are changing lives.
