We are The Village Angels.
Seniors fighting against the devastating effects of Autism.
Each member of our group has been touched personally by Autism in some way. We have children, grandchildren and close friends who live with the disorder, so we know firsthand that help and support is needed on many levels.
We raise public awareness of the challenges that people with Autism and their families face. Now in our third year--and over twenty volunteers strong--we deliver:
- Logistical and emotional support to local families living with Autism;
- Funding and support for research to help treat and cure Autism
- Financial support to local schools for autism programs
How can we help you? Let us know.
