How Your Donation Helps

ABOARD’s Autism Connection of PA is a grassroots organization with a small budget and huge mission. Currently, we serve over 8,000 people across the state of Pennsylvania. We primarily serve people in Western Pennsylvania, but we have been called for help from as far away as Bermuda.

Every day we take calls from service professionals, parents, and adults on the spectrum, and provide help for their autism concerns. To continue our work, we depend primarily on donations from people like you, with the occasional grant from private foundations or similar entities.

The Services that Your Donation Funds Include:

All of the services that we offer require money to fulfill our mission. We prefer not to put our energy into fundraising activities, choosing instead to focus our attention on the needs of people with autism and their caregivers.

Your donation allows our staff to do our best outreach, counseling, and information sharing. Please Donate.

Thank You,

Lu Randall
Executive Director of ABOARD’s Autism Connection of PA
