We are fundraising to create connections in our community.
Parents in Toto Autism Resource Center opened its doors in 2008 to groups and community support for families living with autism. Located on the main downtown corridor of Zelienople, PA, we have been able to meet the needs of a community longing for connection. Our mission is to empower all people living with autism by providing a community where they can access resources and connect through social programs and educational events.
Throughout the changes with the Covid-19 pandemic, we continue maintain our programming AND expand it. Through our virtual groups we've widened our reach, met the need for connection and fostered special interests including creative writing, cooking and relaxation. Your regular support keeps this lasting impact.
In 2021, we are expanding this mission to serve a wider community and new populations. Along with our autism support programs we will begin offering support groups for new moms in the first months and years of parenting experience. This important transition time for families benefits from community, empowerment, and support- all elements of Toto's existing goals. As we welcome new moms into virtual and in-person groups, your designated support will make the new Empowering Moms program and all Toto supports sustainable and successful.
