Who we are...

We're raising Awareness, Acceptance and making Amazing Memories with families!

That’s our mission here at The Autism Nation, and it’s at the heart of what we do. Founded by families with special needs for families with special needs. Our volunteer-based staff hosts truly magical, family-friendly events that are safe, welcoming, fun; and most of all, memory-making for all everyone touched by special needs. Because in the end, what’s more important than that?

How is our non-profit different?

Thanks to the ongoing efforts of non-profits who came before us, autism is more widely recognized and researched than ever before.  But there’s more that can be done when it comes to a feeling of true acceptance and social inclusivity.  We recognized the need for events where all families can feel safe and supported, so they can make memories and have FUN together too; and BAM that’s how The Autism Nation, was born!
