The mission of the Johnson County Autism Support Group, Inc. is to provide support to area families affected by autism.
A small group of parents held the first JCASG meeting in February 2005. The group originally formed to provide a resource for families affected by autism and financially assist children needing therapy. The group continues to do these things today, but have expanded efforts to include social events for families and funding of community programs.
The Johnson County Board of Directors announces the ending of an era…
The Board unanimously voted to discontinue the annual Jack’s Walk for Autism. An event this large requires many volunteers and hundreds of man hours to make it a success. Due to declining attendance and reduced number of volunteers, the BOD believes it would be in the best interest to end the walk on a high note.
We are planning new ways to raise funds as well as awareness for our cause. As we navigate this change, we appreciate your continued support.
We are sincerely grateful for your attendance over the past 10 years and hope to see everyone at our monthly meetings and future social events.
Join us on Thursday, September 18 at Mt Auburn from 6:30-8:30pm. We will be talking about all things autism, so bring your tips and questions.
