HI AND HELLO IF YOU ARE NEW HERE; I AM TIERA, MOM OF THE 2 CUTE BOYS YOU SEE ALL OVER THIS SITE. I CREATED AUTISM IN THE D BECAUSE WHEN MY OLDEST SON WAS DIAGNOSED WITH ASD AT THE AGE OF 3, I COULDN'T FIND MANY HELPING HANDS, AT ALL. THE LACK OF RESOURCES SEEMED TO BE ENDLESS, WHEN IT SHOULD BE THE EXACT OPPOSITE!
WE STARTED FIRST WITH OUR AUTISM AWARENESS WALKS WHERE WE HAVE REACHED 100+ FAMILIES. THIS MADE ME REALIZE THAT I WAS NOT ALONE; WE THEN PIVOTED TO OUR PARENT SUPPORT GROUPS BUT I KEPT RUNNING INTO THE SAME PROBLEM, WE DON'T HAVE A LOCATION TO SAFELY LET OUR CHILDREN PLAY AND US ACTUALLY BE ABLE TO VENT AND TALK AMONGST EACH OTHER!
THIS LEADS US TO OUR NEXT BIG PROJECT, BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP MORE THAN EVER!
WE WILL BE OPENING THE FIRST AUTISM INCLUSIVE PLAY GYM, VIA WRTS, IN THE CITY OF DETROIT--NOT THE METROPOLITAN--THE CITY OF DETROIT!
WE ARE CURRENTLY SEEKING FUNDING FROM A FEW SOURCES TO COVER THE ENTIRE $100,000 FEE'S TO GET STARTED, BUT WE ALSO NEED THE COMMUNITIES HELP!
