The WGAF serves families in our community who have autistic children or adults in the home and financially struggle with providing vital services such as autism treatment, counseling, equine therapy, and many others.

1

SUPPORT

Raising money to financially support carefully vetted families

2

AWARENESS

Promoting awareness about autism and its impact on our community.

3

EDUCATION

Educating the public about what autism is and is not. Education destroys the ignorance and stigma associated with autism.

Friends of the Foundation

This group of local and nationally known public figures has agreed to support, endorse, and increase awareness. While the list is growing, a couple of the friends include Retired General Gary Harrell (commander of the Black Hawk, the helicopter in the true story and movie “Black Hawk Down.”) and Duane Allen; lead singer of the Oak Ridge Boys. We expect this number to continue to grow.
