The Color of Autism Foundation is a 501(c)3 committed to raising public awareness about autism spectrum disorders and devoted to empowering families and lessening their isolation from quality services. We are dedicated to ensuring that all people with autism receive appropriate, effective services in order to maximize their growth potential and to enhance the general public's awareness of autism.
We are a committed to educating and advocating for people of color on the Autism Spectrum and their families. For the last 5 years, we have been focused on bringing the message of early intervention and effective therapies to urban communities we have had a variety of successful campaigns in the past five years. These campaigns are: iPad distribution program, autism awareness church campaign, a documentary, and a continued push in providing targeted materials for families of color in the major metropolitan areas of Detroit and Atlanta.
Over the next three years, we want to continue to be a connection between families and service providers. One of the biggest complaints about urban environments is a lack of services and information. We hope to be that connecting thread that links families to other families and service providers. In the last six months, we have gained several strategic partners in this endeavor who have committed to supporting people with Autism and their families.
