Autism Society of Northwestern Pennsylvania
We create connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community with the resources needed to live fully.
For over 25 years, the Autism Society NWPA has provided support for individuals and families living with an autism spectrum disorder in Erie, Crawford, Venango, and Mercer Counties.
As a local organization, Autism Society NWPA provides individuals and families with support, referrals, mentors, education, and most importantly a community of understanding. We are continuing to make efforts to increase our support across the lifespan for individuals and families living with an autism spectrum disorder.
We are creating a world where everyone in the Autism community is connected to the support they need, when they need it.
Board & Committee Leadership Opportunities
Volunteers are an invaluable part of our team. Volunteers increase the quality of services and programming that we are able to provide. By connecting our volunteers’ skills with our community needs, we will ensure we can continue to provide essential support to individuals and families living with an autism spectrum disorder.
