Our goal is to be a reliable network of information and support for all families across the Grey/Bruce area. Citizens who have a connection to autism including families, children, adults on the spectrum, caregivers, support workers and teachers.
We work with community partners to promote and enhance awareness and understanding about autism.
We hold various fundraising events throughout the year and run programs and events for individuals with ASD and their families to get involved, socialize and network.

Thanks to everyone who came out to our Holiday Break Family Play Date in Owen Sound on Dec 28, 2019. We were pleased to see so many families take advantage of this fun opportunity to get out and socialize!
A portion of the proceeds from our 2019 Golf Tournament was used to bring a instructor up from the Geneva Centre For Autism in Toronto to teach a local 2 day certificate course on ABA tactics last October. 22 local families and educators benefited from this opportunity. We look forward to offering more complimentary workshops and learning opportunities in the future.
Weighted stuffies & lap blankets have made their way to new homes at local Grey Bruce schools, child care centres and families. This was made possible by funds raised from our 2019 Golf Tournament and the help of You Too who donated the fabrics and her time!
Huge thanks to our sponsors, volunteers, golfers, friends and family for making this event a success and a blast!
