How Can We Help?

from Parents of Children with Cancer
By Greening Your Life columnist Cyndi MacKinlay

FAP is a parents support group dedicated to raising awareness of services and supported living arrangements needed for the entire spectrum of adults with autism through developing and implementing educational programs. Our commitment is to focus on the power of education and advocacy in helping to bring about the future legislative environment where our adult children with autism will have the assurance that their vital support necessary to have a future with a quality of life will be there for them after age 21. This would be a life which would allow them to make choices, live as independently as possible, have access to all aspects of the community, hold jobs and become participating members of their communities. Currently we have a 2500 plus membership of parents, professionals, supporters, and members with autism.  For more information, visit
