Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to unite families, their friends, and professionals and become a TEAM in the community promoting awareness, acceptance and supporting each other. We explore Autism through support group meetings, workshops, trainings and fun filled activities for all. We reach out to diverse populations and network with businesses to create Autism Friendly environments. SOAK reaches out through these meetings, a web page, social media and community events. SOAK's goal is to educate the community about living with AUTISM at all ages and stages and create an inclusive community for all!
Currently our organization works in partnership with both national and local agencies and organizations to promote Autism acceptance through community outreach programs, workshops, training and groups.
Our area is ethnically, culturally and financially diverse as Autism Spectrum Disorders diagnosis knows no boundaries. We offer all our services in both Spanish and English.
We have worked to ensure all our events are free to families, caregivers or individuals diagnosed with ASD. We currently offer social and life skills workshops for all ages inclusively, focusing on the whole family approach.
Our earliest groups begin at infant and toddler play joining with early intervention specialists in general settings to provide free screening information and resources for developmental delays and social outings for both caregivers and children.
We host playgroups at parks and recreational facilities for all disabilities with peer buddies and siblings to promote acceptance and anti-bullying as well as finding a place where children with different abilities are surrounded by a positive network of support.
Our teen and adult groups have game nights every month finding enjoyable activities based on preferred activities whether it be board games, card games, digital games or music/videos.
