HELPING CHILDREN AND FAMILIES AFFECTED BY AUTISM
Nassan’s Place can’t STOP the diagnosis,
but we can HELP the families affected by it!
What is Autism?
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs) are developmental disabilities that cause substantial impairments in social interaction and communication and the presence of unusual behaviors and interests. 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.
PLEASE SUPPORT TWO IMPORTANT MILESTONES FOR NASSAN'S PLACE IN 2022!!!
Nassan's Place would like to thank all of our sponsors, donors, volunteers, community partners, friends and family for your support over the past 10 years!
2022 is a big year for us! Nassan's Place is turning 10 years old! And, Nassan, the inspiration for everything we do, is turning 18 YEARS OLD in July!
In honor of our 10 year anniversary and Nassan's 18th birthday, we are asking you to please consider donating $18 or more to help us to continue our mission of helping to enrich and make a difference in the lives the children and families we serve affected by autism in and around under-served inner-city communities! The more money we raise, the more support and resources we can provide to our families in need.
In 2019, Nassan’s Place was gifted a home of our own by Newark Mayor, Ras J. Baraka and the City of Newark. We cannot thank them enough for their support. Our goal is to utilize the entire lot to build a state-of-the-art autism center which would offer so many wonderful services, programs and others resources to our families, and this would be a center they will be able to call their own. BUT... WE CANNOT DO THIS WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT!
We are looking to raise money to kick start this project. This is how your donation can help! If all of our supporters and followers donate $18 or more, we will be able to continue doing what we do, and also provide so many new opportunities and programs to our families in the future.
The sooner we reach our goal of getting a million people to donate $18 or more, the sooner our families could enjoy all the great things that the Nassan's Place Autism Center has to offer for years to come!
A zip code should not be the reason a child goes without needed resources in their community to help them reach their full potential in today’s society.
Thank you for your support and please share!
NASSAN’S PLACE CAN’T STOP THE DIAGNOSIS BUT WE CAN HELP THE FAMILIES AFFECTED BY IT.
The future home of Nassan's Place!
