This center will serve as a place where the parents of children with Autism can go for support and educational resources. The center will also be a place for the complex care of individuals suffering from Autism ranging from pre-school age to adulthood.

The Toronto Foundation’s partners in this year’s annual service project will be church members from the Czech Republic and Slovakia, along with members of the citizen’s organization ZASKLEM, which focuses on helping those suffering from ASD and their families.
