BUILDING HOPE FOR AUTISM FOUNDATION
From initial diagnosis through adult life, Building Hope for Autism accepts, supports and appreciates the strengths and needs of individuals with autism. By providing connections, services, and financial support at key milestones, the organization is determined to help individuals, families, caretakers and other autism organizations build hope for anyone living with autism.
“The need for this foundation is very real,” states co-founders, Paul Barnds and Dr. Shawn Sabin. Barnds and Sabin have seen that need firsthand as they love and care for family members with autism. With the support of Executive Director Mauria Stonestreet and an active Board of Directors, the couple is energized to build a foundation that will fill gaps in services and support autism organizations that already exist.
Where to begin...
Often times individuals on the autism spectrum use iPads to communicate. When someone graduates from high school their equipment does not leave with them, leaving the individual with no way to communicate at home or in the community. We want to help these families by gifting them 10 or more iPads, please consider donating.
