"Offers of support for fire victims from both the local and national autism community have been remarkable," said SDASA president-elect Cherri Cary. "We have resources available for displaced families."

Evacuees are urged to contact the SDASA at (858) 715-0678 or e-mail them at info@sd-autism.org. The chapter will identify specific needs and provide assistance as they are able, working with the generous members throughout the county, state and nation.

"ASA joins with its members all over the nation to offer its support of all citizens in the California counties affected by the wildfires," said Lee Grossman, President and CEO of the Autism Society of America. "As with other national disasters, we continue to be so proud of our chapters and their rapid, caring response to families living with autism."
