Give a Little Bit

We want the world to know: by giving just a little bit, you can make a legendary difference in the lives of families affected by autism across the country. And so, Give a Little Bit was born. Running from World Autism Awareness Day 2019 until the end of 2020, this 20-month campaign is designed to raise awareness, encourage volunteerism and grow our reach of support. All efforts directly support the growth of the Jake’s House community events, such as our annual holiday parties, and community services, such as our Legends Mentoring Program.
