Our Mission…

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. For more information, contact Sheila Benham at (317) 691-1196.
