Change has been a constant with the Bucks County Autism Support Coalition ("BCASC"). We have evolved over the years to fit the needs of our local Autism Community. After 8-years as an organization, we find ourselves at another crossroads. It is with mixed emotions that we are informing you of the decision to dissolve the BCASC. When this organization was created, there were no other organizations providing this type of support to the Autism Community in Bucks County. Today, that is not the case. There are now many organizations in Bucks County and Pennsylvania that provide education, activities and support to families with individuals on the Autism Spectrum. In conjunction with our dissolution, the BCASC will be donating our remaining Net Assets to the Autism Cares Foundation in support of their organization and its mission.
It has been our honor to serve the Autism Community in Bucks County. We want to thank our Sponsors, Donors and Volunteers for their generosity. Without your support, this Coalition would not have been able to provide the many programs and events over the years. We want to thank the presenters at our Annual Conference and various Speaker Series for helping us expand the community’s understanding and awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder. We want to also thank everyone that has attended any of our events. We hope we were able to bring a better awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder to you and that this knowledge has had a positive effect on the individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder in your lives.
We are very proud of what we were able to accomplish at the BCASC. We hosted eight (8) wonderful Autism Conferences, presented dozens of free Educational sessions, ran many Family Fun events, moderated a Parent Forum for several years and were able to provide $285,000 in grants and sponsorships to over 20 different organizations during the past 8+ years. We thank you again for your support over the years and we wish you all the best in the future.
Very Truly Yours,
Board of Directors, Bucks County Autism Support Coalition
