why we walk

Autism affects the entire family, not just the person identified with the disability. The mental and emotional health of parents, marital relationships, meeting the needs of the other children in the family, relationships with extended family, friends and neighbors. All aspects of family life is affected. 

Not only relationships, but routine functions, such as housekeeping, finances, and shopping are impacted by the challenges autism presents. Families tend to isolate
themselves due to exhaustion caused by caring for the child with autism. Autism thrives on isolation. The pandemic increased these struggles. The loss of socialization and communication can adversely affect the emotional health of each family member. 

The Walk brings awareness to our community, provides networking opportunities for families, and provides funding to accomplish our goals.  


Interested in Involvement for Your Business or Organization?

Community partnerships are critical to help us  impact our community. Does your business or organization provide opportunities for socialization? We can help! Families need a broad array of community events. We also need sponsors willing to open doors for new experiences. The impact of a few hours of socialization eases the constant struggle of autism for families.

 The joy is incomparable. Families have shared that the opportunities  provided by Autism Alliance impact the mental health of the entire family. They are instilled with a sense of belonging that we all need.
