For Jake’s Sake is a non-profit, created to raise money and provide the ability for autistic children to access effective therapies they otherwise could not afford. Children with autism need certain therapies to overcome their symptoms, yet schools and health insurance providers may not provide access or adequate services to meet the child’s needs. We will provide qualifying families the funding to obtain effective therapy – because every child deserves the chance to realize their full potential.
The Vision of the Board is to provide funding to families for ABA services relating to their child’s autism. The Board strongly believes in ABA therapy as a means of helping a child learn to their fullest potential. Autism services are not readily available in most cities and towns. There are waiting lists for Early Intervention services, and at age 3 the services are even harder to obtain. ABA therapy and other related services come with a high price tag. The Board hopes to alleviate some of that financial burden so that children with autism do not have to go without the services they need.
Founded in 2008 by Dawn Cobak and other concerned parents and professionals, For Jake’s Sake aims to offer financial assistance to qualified families. We strive to ensure that no child is turned away, however our abilities will rely on our funding. For Jake’s Sake is a 501(c)(3) organization relying on the generosity of corporations, foundations and individuals to fund our mission. Your support allows for the providing of funding for programs that develop essential skills for children with disabilities.
