On April 22, 2017, the 4th Annual Spring Forward for Autism event was held at the “The Grand Manor” f/k/a Space Coast Realtor Association.  Thanks to the generosity of the Brevard community, we raised over $50,000.  With your support, we will be able to help many local families that are raising an autistic child!

We cannot thank our Sponsors enough for their continued support of our cause!  We could not have done this without your contributions.

Where does the Spring Forward for Autism money go?

To private families and organizations is Brevard County affected by Autism Spectrum disorders. Your contributions have provided grants to cover incremental expenses related to raising a child with autism including diagnosis, therapies, sensory equipment, medical equipment and other treatments.
