AutismCares is providing grants to help financially disadvantaged families to cover costs associated with unplanned expenses that have arisen during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Families can apply online to be considered for assistance at www.autismcares.org.
Once you set up a login, be sure to select the application AutismCares - Hurricane Sandy.
Financial Support Awards provide financial relief up to $1,000 for individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and their families to help cover costs associated with critical living expenses such as housing, utilities, car repair, funeral expenses, and other essential items on a case-by-case basis.
Even our family – which I would describe as members of the beleaguered middle classes – qualified for some assistance, so I urge any families affected by both autism and Hurricane Sandy to apply. We're so grateful for their assistance.
The next deadline is December 22nd, and they turn the applications around in about 2 weeks. It was really fast and such a help.
