Mission Statement

Miles4Autism will help improve the lives of families in communities with their journey through autism. By helping communities realize these children are capable of contributing and becoming productive human beings in today's society, rather than the generation requiring government support. Once families are given the diagnosis of autism, it is immediately followed with the reality that most services are not covered by their health insurance, they then need to learn how to be the best lifetime advocate for their child and juggle the fnancial battle all while feeling isolated and alone, even though millions of families face the same reality across our nation. Our goal is to build a nonprofit organization in communities across our nation to be self-sufficient through volunteerism and donations from the families with autism, communitites, celebrities, and corporate America. All while affording to provide Speech, O.T., P.T., and Behavior/Social therapies and other services for free of charge to as many children and young adults with autism as we can. The proceeds from the community donations to Miles4Autism a retail/consignment/thrift store opening across the nation will help these children with autism and their families achieve their child's full potential rather than their limited budget potential. We are dedicated to 100% funding of the therapy services that benefit children with autism and to raise public awareness by educatin communities about how this epedemic not only affects the families of children with autism, but the nation as a whole.

Description

We are a non-profit retail establishment that offers free therapy services on same site as the retail establishment. We are ran by mostly volunteers to keep costs down. We would like to be fully self -sufficient from donation which are turned into sales at our retail establishment. Our pilot location will be in San Clemente, still looking for location. It will have the retail area, therapy area, tutor area, employment training area, general public fun area to help autism children/young adults interact with neurotypical children on a daily basis and make new friends.
