About This Campaign

There is still time to give back - to give hope. Families struggling with autism need hope. Treatment for autism if effective . . . it is available . . . but thousands who need it cannot access this life-transforming treatment . . . and the healthcare landscape is under renewed attack. We need to stand strong to protect the benefits we have fought so hard for as well as continue to assist families struggling to access care due to insufficient networks or excessive hurdles. Donations of any amount can help! $25 $50 $100 $250 - $500 provides comprehensive insurance consultation for 1 family,
$1000 funds an insurance presentation/webinar to educate 50 families how to access care. $3000 purchases health plan for a child for one year to cover treatment of up to $70,000.

Please consider a donation so ADEC Foundation can complete implementation of this benefit. California's most vulnerable kids need this life-changing treatment

ADEC Foundation's Kristin Jacobson led the effort to secure this essential coverage and was awarded Medicaid advocate-of-the-year by Autism Speaks.
