2023 Sensory Friendly Family Fest
Saturday from 11:00 AM - 3:00 PM EDT
At Family Fest, we invite everyone to explore sensory play in our sensory Activity Zone, interact with different vehicles at our touch-a-truck, eat yummy food from local food trucks, and hear some amazing stories about social-emotional learning and inclusion by local authors. Our resource fair area provides opportunities to make valuable connections and learn about available resources. Sponsors and Resource fair participants appreciated: https://givebutter.com/LLD7Rc
Founded in 2008 as Parents in Toto Autism Resource Center, we offered parents of autistic individuals, and their children, support and connection through regular support groups and community events. In fifteen years, our programming diversified as it provided social and emotional support primarily for neurodiverse individuals of a wide range of ages, including young adults and independent living autistic adults. Toto expanded to include virtual programs in 2020, allowing us to reach individuals at home and sustained these to support those with limited access to transportation, in a wider range of locations, including rural areas. We acquired the Empowering Moms Program in early 2021, applying our community-centered mission and services to expecting and new mothers.
A rebrand in 2022 helped usher us into our fifteenth year of service. In order to ensure a non-ableist approach to the autistic community, our Inclusive Autism Program committed to identifying with the infinity symbol and neurodiverse affirming language. Empowering Moms Program expands our community, empowers a diverse and wide array of women on their motherhood journey and helps us reach families as they begin.
All programs and services are open, non-clinical and are available to anyone, regardless of income level. Our programs are funded through grants and the generosity of corporate and private donors. As a nonprofit organization, Toto welcomes and relies on donor support to continue serving and empowering our families, friends, and neighbors.
Thank you for your support.
