Spring Forward for Autism: Illuminate the Night gala


Spring Forward For Autism is a nonprofit working to provide emotional and financial support to ease the strains on those affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders. We support families by connecting members of the Autistic community, empowering and inspiring others, raising public awareness to foster advocacy, and furthering access to available resources.

Right here in Brevard County, Florida hundreds of families deal daily with the care and management of a child with autism. The cost in terms of stress, exhaustion, emotional distress and financial drain is great. To lessen this burden and help families deal with raising a child on the spectrum, organizations like Spring Forward For Autism are working together to provide the resources and support needed.
