HAPPY HOLIDAYS from JACK’S PLACE for Autism Foundation!
2015 has been an amazing and productive year for JACK’S PLACE. Since 2002, JACK’S PLACE has assisted over 9,500 children, adults and families navigate through the world of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We proudly serve both children and adults from Ann Arbor, Bad Axe, Bay City, Caseville, Clinton Township, Detroit, Eastpointe, Flint, Grand Rapids, Grayling, Holland, Imlay City, Iron Mountain, Kalamazoo, Lexington, Port Huron, Roseville, Saginaw, Southgate, Southfield, Taylor, Westland, and our neighbors in Toledo, Ohio, South Bend, Indiana and Ontario, to name just a few.
81 cents of every dollar donated in 2015 provided:
- 539 Referrals for respite care, medical and education providers, and employment opportunities
- One to one parent and guardian support, early referral programs, Individual Education Plans (IEP) and Person Centered Plan (PCP) assistance, Advocacy Support
- Scholarships and Grants that include swim instruction, baseball, basketball and summer camps, dance, art and theater workshops, driver’s training and cooking school
- 11th annual Autism Awareness Day at Comerica Park with over 500 children and adults in attendance – 3rd longest running Autism Awareness Day in Major League Baseball
- Four (4) day long Family Fun Day Activities and Resource Events with 2,600 participants
We cannot do this important work on our own. It is with the help of donors like you and our many partnership throughout the community, that we are able to continue making the difference in the lives of so many. Each year with the increase in diagnosis of ASD, the needs of families expand. We need your help to continue assisting parents, guardians, and caregivers in providing the proper services for those with ASD which now occurs at a rate of 1 in 68 births; 1 in 42 boy births.
With so many people needing assistance, we hope you can find it in your heart to consider making a donation to JACK’S PLACE. Please visit our “Make a Donation” page. Your gift will help provide necessary resources to those living with ASD.
Wishing you and your a Blessed and Joyous Holiday!
