AutismCares Offers Support to Families Affected by California Fires
Date:10/25/2007

NEW YORK, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- AutismCares is actively seeking families affected by autism who are also victims of the California wildfires, and invites those families to call the Autism Response Team at 1-888-Autism2 or email autismcares@autismspeaks.org to receive assistance. Families may also register directly at http://www.autismcares.org. Registration will enable AutismCares to contact families to provide support services. AutismCares can also facilitate temporary and permanent relocation for families, mobilize specialty assistance teams including therapists, and provide autism-related supplies directly to families and the professionals caring for them.

AutismCares is a consortium of leading autism organizations and was formed in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to coordinate relief efforts for the thousands of families who were victims of the disaster. AutismCares subsequently assisted families displaced by Hurricanes Rita and Wilma and now supports all families affected by autism who fall victim to natural disasters. Children with autism often require intensive biomedical and behavioral therapies and thoroughly planned routines. AutismCares has created a network to support families whose struggle with autism is intensified by natural disaster, forced relocation and scarce resources.

After Hurricane Katrina struck, AutismCares directly assisted over 80 families, providing housing, furniture, toys, groceries and other essential items. "AutismCares was born out of the compassion that members of the autism community have for one another," said Peter Bell, executive vice president of Autism Speaks and executive committee member of AutismCares. "Many of us know firsthand how challenging it is to care for a child with autism. Add a natural catastrophe that strips a family of everything it has and it's a recipe for disaster."
