Family Navigation

2020-2020 Core Award - $93,000.00

Family Navigation services provide guidance to the families of children diagnosed with autism, so they may connect to essential therapies and services. Parents of individuals with autism can feel lost, confused, or overwhelmed at times. This program helps by navigating families through services in the St. Louis area. In addition, staff members provide an individualized step-by-step plan to improve the quality of life for the entire family, and can provide support with life transitions throughout every milestone.

Respite Services

2020-2022 Core Award - $306,000.00

The Respite Services program offers the caregivers of children with autism opportunities to leave their child with qualified professionals, so they may rest, practice self-care, run errands, or otherwise participate in activities they may be unable to access. This benefits the mental health of caregivers, which very directly impacts the mental health and wellness of children.
