Join me in supporting RAIN.
After being a part of this wonderful organization for almost 10 years, I see and know what a kind heart and a helping hand can do to change the life of a person with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
We are raising money to help support our social and life skills programming for teens and young adults on the Autism Spectrum. Like a lot of non profits, RAIN has been hit hard by COVID related challenges. Since 2020, our funding has been limited due to COVID restrictions. We still have persevered to provide services to help our students deal with their emotions as well as provide support during the pandemic.
We have provided services in person safely so that our students wouldn't regress without social interaction. We have talked about tough subjects and helped our students navigate anxiety and depression stemming from uncertainty. This summer we were even able to safely provide community based instruction with social distancing guidelines in place to a limited number of students.
The services that RAIN provides have helped support a population that often has trouble with isolation and depression in non- pandemic years. We have seen students progress from not interacting with others at all, and self isolating to having the confidence to interact with their peers.
We have helped students realize their own potential despite all the challenges that being a teen or young adult with Autism comes with. We ask for your support to help us continue this goal. All donations will go towards operation of our organization and support of our students. No amount is too small. Every donation is tax deductible as we are a registered 501c3.
The mission of RAIN is to enhance the social and spiritual health of individuals with Autism through creative social and recreational outlets and to help lay the foundation for building lasting relationships as well as offer support to their families and communities. Help us support that mission.
