Welcome to Nassan’s Place

Nassan’s Place can’t stop the diagnoses, BUT we can HELP the families affected by them!

Nassan’s Place is a 501(c)(3) non profit corporation that is helping to make a difference in the lives of children and families affected by autism in and around under-served communities by providing educational and recreational programs, social outings, and resources.

Autism is an urgent and growing public health crisis that affects most individuals across their lifespan and demands a commensurate level of action from both the public and private sectors.

New Jersey has the highest rate of Autism in the country, 1 in 34; the national rate is 1 in 45.
