Grace Foundation of New York
The Grace Foundation was created to support and advocate for Staten Island and Brooklyn families of children diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorders. This support takes the form of social educational and information resources. We take a proactive role with families professionals and government officials in the development and advancement of education policies and programs that deal specifically with autism/pervasive developmental disorder (PDD). With an all-volunteer Board of Directors our foundation's mission is to use contributions for support services and programs for member families and to keep administrative costs to a bare minimum. We provide a comprehensive network of family support in dealing with the many issues and challenges of living with and raising an autistic child. It is an ongoing goal to inform and enlighten the general public and elected officials of the severity impact and extent of autism on our society. The Grace Foundation is fully committed to working with all schools government and independent agencies and research organizations to relieve mitigate and eventually cure all developmental disabilities associated with autism.
