The Invest in Independence Scholarship Fund enables adults with developmental disabilities such as autism to participate in CA’s transformative Residential Program.
Developmental disabilities, such as autism, are a lifelong journey. The costs associated with care and services, according to a recent study, are upwards of $1.4 million* over a lifespan. Receiving care and access to services and support to live independently shouldn’t be out of reach due to the inability to afford it.
CA is raising funds to support an economically disadvantaged adult with autism or other developmental disability who would otherwise be unable to participate in this life changing program. This annual scholarship covers all expenses for room and board, intensive life skills services, and coaching.
Your support is critical to enabling and empowering adults to thrive as they transition to adulthood and living independently, despite their or their family's economic circumstances. Please donate, and share our fundraiser with at least 5 people.
CA Human Services works to improve the lives of Virginians with autism and other developmental disabilities. For over 25 years we've been advocating, enabling, and creating change by closing gaps in services for the neuro-diverse community.
