WE MUST EXPAND!
The Autism Society Northwestern Pennsylvania has been providing support for individuals and families living with an Autism Spectrum Disorder in Erie, Crawford, Venango and Mercer Counties for the past 21 years.
The number of individuals and families we aim to help has expanded exponentially since we started ASNWPA. Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability in the US. 1 in 59 children have been identified with autism spectrum disorder.
We are proud to say we have outgrown our current space in multiple ways. Though we have done well with our limited resources and finite reach, we know we can reach more families and provide more services in a larger home. We want to be able to grow enough in the immediate future to be able to match the need of our community. With expanded space and capabilities, we can vastly enlarge our programming opportunities for individuals and families affected by autism.
We are 100% reliant on fundraising dollars, every little bit helps!
Will you help us continue our efforts and expand by supporting us through Erie Gives on August 13? www.eriegives.org
