Students like Charlie are proving them wrong every single day. Your donation will go directly towards supporting our afterschool social skills classes and our transition-to-employment. With so many of our families financially strained by the overwhelming cost of raising a child with autism, your support allows us to continue offering our services on a sliding scale. One in 59 individuals (and 1 in 37 boys) are diagnosed with autism, and the lifetime cost to raising and supporting this population is $1.4 million. This staggering figure leaves so many families in need of services like Social Motion. For children and young adults with a social skills deficit disability, our social skills classes and transition-to-employment program are lifechanging. When you support programs like Social Motion and our microenterprise, Aspire Accessories, you are supporting some of society’s most vulnerable children and young adults. Those, who with some help, can achieve the skills needed for a lifetime of success. Looking to make a true impact this holiday season?
Your gift of $59 will help offset one week of social skills class for a child whose family is already stretched thin financially.
Your gift of $250 will cover social skills classes for one child for a month – providing valuable social skills and parent training to a family in need.
Your gift of $1000 will support an Aspire Accessories artisan’s job training for one month – bringing a sense of community along with the job coaching needed for meaningful work skills.
A gift of $2400 will cover job coaching to help a young adult achieve employment and receive the support and skills he or she needs to become financially independent.
