Business Participation Form


As part of the grant we made this short video trying to capture all the great things that happened at mini-camp.  I was privileged to watch many children, teens and adults with autism communicate for the first time in ways parents had never imagined.  There were many tears of joy and surprise.  It will be a memory that will stay with me always. Thank you to all the parents and the volunteers who participated in our camps, and to Lillian Vasquez at KVCR for putting this wonderful video together!  I hope this inspires and encourages many others.
