Anderson Foundation for Autism Virtual Benefit

Anderson Foundation for Autism (AFA) exists to support the mission and work of Anderson Center for Autism (ACA). In March of 2020 ACA didn’t skip a beat and continued to provide the level of services and care that you expect from us, even as the pandemic hit. ACA was able to do this with significant funding from AFA, allowing immediate access to the needs of our dedicated, Team Members, notably, our Direct Support Professionals (DSP). We have weathered the first round of this new storm with strength, and sustainability. Now we are preparing for a future which will undoubtedly include a continuation of pandemic-related challenges as well as budget cuts. We need your help, now more than ever. Our DSPs are the lifeblood of ACA, our heroes, our role models, our hearts. In honor of their tremendous integrity, professionalism and dedication, please support the 2020 Year of the DSP Virtual Benefit.
