The Faces of our volunteers have changed over the years, but each of the faces has been of someone who is committed to helping in the fight against Autism.
Currently there are those who work in the ASD field, retirees, people in sales, small business owners, public employees, an attorney, people employed in the private sector, mental health, property management, health care, school administrators: people just like you.
Some became committed because they were family or friends or worked in the ASD community; others because they wanted to help. The Autism community owes each of them a debt for their tireless efforts.
