The struggles local families face when a loved one is on the autism spectrum can make them feel very alone. ASNV shows them they’re not – and we’re happy to help however we can.
Gainesville, VA (PRWEB) April 13, 2016
Robertson Insurance Associates debuts the latest charity campaign in its recognized community enrichment program in Gainesville, VA by announcing their intent to direct efforts in raising awareness and funds for the Autism Society of Northern Virginia. Readers who wish to support local families dealing with the challenges of autism may now contribute at: https://www.crowdrise.com/improving-lives-of-local-children-with-autism.
The Autism Society of Northern Virginia (ASNV) is proud to have served the community for almost 50 years. One of more than 100 chapters across the country, the ASNV works towards a day when no one will have to walk the autism journey alone by building community for over 5000 individuals and families in the region. Focusing on education, advocacy and support, popular programs include a life skills program for autistic adults by autistic adults, low-cost family social events and an assistive technology program which provides tablets and training to families. Most autism therapies and services are not covered by insurance; therefore, the ASNV provides reimbursement to families for autism-related expenses through their mini-grant program. Over $500,000 in financial assistance has been provided to area families over the last 10 years.
“Making our community better and stronger is the ultimate goal of our Community Program,” said Rick Robertson, owner of Robertson Insurance Associates. “The struggles local families face when a loved one is on the autism spectrum can make them feel very alone. ASNV shows them they’re not – and we’re happy to help however we can.”
The caring team at Robertson Insurance has set a fundraising goal of $500, with the agency itself pledging to donate $10 to the cause for every recommendation they receive for an insurance quote, with no purchase necessary.
