Last year YOU helped more than 2,200 individuals with educational services, self-advocacy, employment and day training. Fifty years ago society didn’t believe those with autism could receive an education, work or become independent. We collectively believed and our clients are moving mountains! They are employed in retail, fast-food, food services, housekeeping and much more. Together, we set a precedent and others have followed.

How can you continue to help pave the way for a better tomorrow for those living with autism spectrum disorder? Let us show you the ways…

Donate your Time ~ Volunteers are our angels in disguise. Without our 120 plus volunteers we wouldn’t raise over $100,000 at our annual events or spend the necessary one-on-one time with that 4-year old who depends on it each week. Volunteers help at our events, in our offices, on a playground, in our gardens, in a classroom, and so much more!

Sponsorship ~ Companies love to see their name on display and we are proud to display your name when you underwrite one of various fundraising events. This is a wonderful way to support an incredible cause along with the community that supports you.

Monetary Donations~ Our special request this year is to further our quest to not allow our clients to trail behind in the world of technology. Thirty-five percent of low income households lack internet and computers – a technology deficit. Many of our clients use technology for communications, social interaction, learning tools and much more. Recently, we began equipping classrooms with wall-mounted Micro-PC Learning Centers. We can continue this with your help. Each center contains a Micro-PC at $800, 43 inch monitor at $250, wall mount at $100, keyboard and mouse at $70, and a DVD drive at $30. Help propel ICA to that next level of technological service by making a donation https://illinoiscenterforautism.networkforgood.com/projects/87040-2019-annual-letter
