Autism Facts

Because of your help, people like Propa have received support 24/7, enriching their lives through daily progress and programs. Little City is growing, and with our recent expansion of our school and community support systems, we need your continued support to care for each individual in our communities. Our adults and children diagnosed with autism are aging, coupled with less state funding to address those needs, we are more dependent on contributions from donors like you. We need your help.
