The Autism Community Walk, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created to address the many unmet needs of people affected by autism and developmental disabilities. Resources are always a pressing need. And our needs are growing: adult housing, research, employment, safety, pre-school services, special education budgets and standards, access to health care, civil rights, Medicaid - all are mightily affected by decision makers, and our families need a strong voice and ongoing representation before New York legislators, the State Regents, and other powerful decision making bodies where our families are rarely heard. We want to assure that there is a strong and consistent voice for people with autism and related disorders and their families. And with your help we will.
