Nationally, since 1965, the Autism Society in partnership with our over 100 local and state affiliates has supported millions of individuals and families impacted by autism. The Autism Society envisions individuals and families living with autism are able to maximize their quality of life, are treated with the highest level of dignity, and live in a society in which their talents and skills are appreciated and valued.
The Northern NV chapter, of the Autism Society has been in operation since 1993. The local chapter helps support regional groups who assist Northern Nevada Autism families, by distributing donation funds and information. Another northern NV resource is the JUSTin HOPE Foundation that provides information and support to families who have a child with autism.
